We danced to a recorded mashup of Tzadik Katamar and I Have a Little Dreidel. It was fun to alternate between major key and minor key versions of Dreidel.
Then we danced to a vocal mashup of Ma Na'avu and Sivivon Sov Sov Sov. It was slow and beautiful.
To liven things up, as couples we experimented with our Schottische basic step and variations set to the music of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Lastly, we did a contra dance to a mashup of Frosty the Snowman and Jingle Bells (audio track above). Those two traditional songs have the AABB format for a contra dance! I hope the dancers enjoyed dancing to all of these holiday tunes as much as we enjoyed recording them. Sharon opined that the amateur quality of our recordings confirmed their authenticity as folk music.
