Folk Dance At Piedmont Virginia Community College

Last Wednesday I attended the PVCC Dance Club’s monthly meeting and introduced them to several folk dances. The dances we did were For a Birthday, the Troika, Hava Nagila,  Adjon  az Isten, Setnja, Zemer Atik, and Miserlou!  We had a great time! It is always great to dance with college students.

At our last meeting Sue C taught the Bulgarian dance Pravo Cepelarsko Horo

 and Turkish Debka.

Have you danced with a child recently?

Workshop with Andor Czompo

It was great to have Andor come to our group to teach the first half of the “Easy dozen Hungarian Dances”.  He was very informative about the history and folk lore of the dances.  Listening to Andor always makes me feel as if I am in Hungary dancing. The dances he taught were:
 Karikazo from Puspokbogat(Baranya County) southern Hungary,
 Csardas(a Variation from Vanya),
 Urai Korcsardas – Eastern Hungary,
 Szeki Tanc( a variation for children, Transylvania-Hungary),
Csendes – a slow couple Csardas

We hope to have him back in the fall to do the rest of the “Easy Hungarian Dozen”.

In November he will be doing a workshop in Florida.

Another Day, Another Dance,
Keep Dancing!
