Some people have taken my class for the past four years. In preparing for class, I want to include dances for them that are fresh and challenging. There are new dancers, and since it is after all a BEGINNING folk dance class, I want to keep it accessible for them. I need to balance aerobic dances with slow dances. And I want to include dances from around the world.
Spring 2014 is ready to roll out this week. I always think each semester is going to be the BEST YET. Two traditions I intend to keep are - having a periodic international potluck in conjunction with a dance party, and providing each dancer with materials, including a step sheet of all the dances and a CD of all the music. We'll see if spring 2014 turns out to be the best yet.
