We dance every Friday night at 7:45 most evenings, followed by refreshments and more dancing until 11 pm.
Every month we have a 15 minute And Now For Something Completely Different session, where we do some fun activity organized by one of our members. For our September session we danced a Japanese dance Unagappa Ondo which portrays a mischievous water sprite who carries a bowl of water on his head and plays tricks on people. It was a warm summer night, so we did the dance with real bowls of water on our heads.
For more fun, see the full version below.
Here is a slideshow featuring some of our members, so you can get a sense of who we are.
Sometimes we have dance festivals, where we join other groups and dance together. Here we are at our Winter Festival January 2013.
We dance many fun and easy dances, but we also dance some more challenging ones to, like the one below. It looks easy at first, but gets faster and faster as the dance progresses. It took us a month and a half of teaching to learn it. Of course, not everyone has to learn every dance.
On rare occasions, we perform, mainly as a way to share our love of folk dancing with others. Here some of us are in costume, dancing an Israeli dance called Banu Le Ha’ir Et Ha’ir.
Most of the time we just have fun. Here we are this spring, dancing the Maypole dance.
Join us any Friday.
