Hambo Workshop, Sebastopol Time: 6:30 pm - 7:20 pm
We will learn the basics of the Swedish hambo from two Scandinavian dance instructors, Vincent Taylor and Emma Charlebois, who have over 25 years Scandinavian dancing experience apiece, and have been to Sweden almost countless times.
We'll learn footwork to the beat; posture, connection and polska hold and frame; pivoting; leader's footwork; follower's footwork; leader and follower together.
This class is for dancers who are proficient in some other partner dancing, like waltz, swing, tango, etc., or of course Hambo.
The follow-on contra dance will feature two hambos during the evening so you can practice more.
Instructors: Vincent Taylor (won his Silver medal in Sweden) and Emma Charlebois (won her Silver medal in Sweden)
Price (contra dance is separate admission price): $4
