He started out teaching Sofka a dance we had learned from Kyriakos Moisidis.
The other dances Michael taught were: Gravosko(Ventzi), Preplet, Myatalo lenche, Devetorka, Pravo Trakitsko, Eleno Mome, Pajdushko, Varnensko, Cocek, and not to be left out we did a Lesnoto.
As usual, the dance party in the evening was fun. Those of us there danced to our heart’s content and visited with friends. Chervon Traktor provided the music for our dancing and listening pleasure. They also provided music the second half of the dance workshop.
We continued our dancing weekend Sunday by attending the opening church picnic of St. Nicholas Serbian Eastern Orthodox Church at Serb Park in Harrisburg. They did a grapevine step to Miserlou that I had never seen done before. The music was provided by Sviraj and the Polka quads. As for the food– ” Pigs in the Blanket” just the way Mom used to make them and delicious roast lamb–not for the squeamish.
Again, Monday arrives and back to work with memories of dancing fun!
Another Day, Another Dance,
Share the Dance!
