Appalachian Dance - Clogging och square dance

Tidigare bergsmusiken i södra Appalacherna utvecklades ursprungligen hand i hand med dans - både sociala torgdanser och solo dans, känd som clogging, flatfooting eller buckdancing.
Under denna två timmars workshop lär vi oss grunden för båda typerna av danser och dansar sedan tillsammans med levande old time musik. Använd platta skor om du har det. Alla nybörjare är välkomna - ingen danserfarenhet eller partner krävs.


Ledare: Bradley Kennedy is one of the founders of the Washington DC Square Dance, the largest (and possibly the rowdiest) regularly occurring traditional Appalachian square dance in the world. She started calling dances out of necessity at house parties where people wanted to dance but needed some guidance. It wasn't until years later that she discovered that her grandfather had been a square dance caller in Texas in the 1950s and 60s. She loves to teach dancing to beginners, especially people who think they can't dance.
