I'm just back from a folk dance trip to Greece and Albania - and excited about teaching some of the many dances I learned while I was there. Dances to be taught include Zaramo, one of the most common dances done in Greek Macedonia; a beautiful Greek Pontic Halay; and a lovely Tsamiko from Konitsa.

Here's a photo of our group performing at a glendi in Limno Chori in Greece:

And a photo of a wedding party dancing in the streets in Korca, Albania:

International folk dance classes will be starting up after Labor Day:
  • Mondays 7-9:15 p.m., September 12-December 12, Herman Sons Hall, 860 Western Avenue Petaluma
  • Wednesdays 7-8:15 p.m., September 7-October 5, Dance Palace, 503 B Street, Point Reyes
I'll also be teaching a new daytime line dance class at the Dance Palace on Fridays 9-10 a.m., September 16-October 7.
Hope to see you all on the dance floor!
