Happy new year!

Folk dance classes will start up again in the new year at Herman Sons Hall in Petaluma on Mondays 7-9:15 p.m., January 11-May 3 (no class March 29) and at the Dance Palace in Point Reyes on Wednesdays 7:15-8:30 p.m., January 13-February 17. Ballroom dance classes are scheduled for Wednesdays 6-7 p.m., at the Dance Palace; the first session January 13-February 17 will focus on salsa, cha cha, and rumba.

Folk dances taught this session will include a few more from Turkey (Ordu, Oropa), a couple learned from Yves Moreau at the 2009 Kolo Festival (Pravo Cepalarkso Oro, Proletni Buenek, Zensko Zapansko), some classics that it would be nice to put back into the repertoire (Bucimis, Sandansko Oro, Kokice, Hora Fetelor, Vidinsko Oro, Zensko Pousteno Oro), and a couple of my favorite Israeli dances (Eilat, Bat Teiman, She'Keshe'Navo).

The beginning of the new year is a great time to start dancing! Bring your friends and come join us. Beginners, newcomers, drop-ins, intermediate/advanced dancers are all welcome, and no partner is necessary.
