Welcome to the Barboursville International Recreational Dance(BIRD) Project! BIRD Project seeks to document the unique lives, stories, and perspectives of International Folk Dancers in the United States.
The project has three phases:
1. A survey of how often dances are danced.
2. Documentation of teaching and execution of dances.
3. Documentation of your stories relating to folkdance.
The first part of the project is documentation of the dances that are done weekly (whenever a group gets together).
The second part involves the teachers and dancers. Documenting by video the teaching and execution of the dances.
The third area involves collecting stories from folkdancers about folkdancing.
