I would like to thank the Virginia Beach Folk Dance Group for their continuing efforts in bringing us such a great opportunity to learn new dances and dance the ones we know with friends we don’t often see. Mike, Judy and Sam did a great job teaching. It was also a treat having live music. Would some one please email me the names of the muscians so that I can thank them properly! I hope to see more of you there in the fall!
Thank you Susan J. for the link to Sitna Zborenka http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3voynv0ACo
Another Day, Another Dance!
People must still be digging out because not as many dancers came out to dance. The sun is still shining when we leave our house for folk dancing YEH :)! The dances reviewed last night were Siganos, Lilijano Mome, Dhivaratikos, Hora la Trei, and Vlashko. At this time I am unable to put the appropriate symbols on letters, so some of the dances are spelled phonetically in English.
You Tube has a Siganos @http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2LcBjU_HtU, couldn’t find it on dancilla, or in Dick Oakes’ dance notes.
I couldn’t find any videos of the other dances that we reviewed this week. Another reason to post the videos as a review on this blog.
Yes, I’ve been having technical difficulties in that the email address for this blog always goes to spam and is sent right back to me! Please email me with comments on this blog at BIRDProject2010@gmail.com and please add it to your address book.
Now for the videos. They are password protected so that only the participants from Charlottesville International Folk Dancers and guests are permitted to view them. In the future we may open them up to the public. This week it is instruction for Dhivaratikos.
