Incalcita, Hora din Campie

We had an afternoon of intermediate dancing this past Sunday.

Bill taught Incalcita, which means confusing or unclear, a dance from Bessarabia, The Republic of Moldova. Below is a link to the dance notes and a video.  We do it the same way they do it on the video.

Definitely, if you want a workout Incalcita is the dance for you. Follow it with Hora din Campie for a nice cool down!.

Lissavo, Hora Lautereasca

This week Bill taught Lissavo from Goumenissa which is in the central part of Macedonia.  This town has a a folklore museum and is known for producing good wines.

We do the dance a little differently from the following video. The dancers in the video do 2 hops and the version that we do only has one hop.

Speaking of Dunav, did you tune into Yahuda’s broadcast this morning? I didn’t understand the language, but the music spoke to me!

Start the New Year off right and dance with as many children as you can!
