News and Updates:

Several weeks ago, I taught a fun family workshop for parents and kids from the Greenwood School in Mill Valley. Here's a photo of the group dancing Ersko Kolo. I'm available to teach folk dance workshops for all ages for school and community groups, as well as for weddings and parties.

Famed Macedonian singer-dancer Dragi Spasovski and Balkan band the Mehanatones will present and evening of traditional Macedonian song and dance this Saturday, February 28, at Ashkenaz in Berkeley - dance lesson at 8 p.m., music at 9 p.m.

This week's class instruction will feature Gori Mare, a Serbian-American dance I learned from Lee Otterholt at the Festival of the Oaks. I'm also busily watching, taking notes, and learning from the Yves Moreau dance DVD archive (over 100 dances!) and hope to re-introduce some of these dances throughout the next few months.
