Can't resist the urge to move to Balkan Romani music? Then don't! Join us for a workshop series focusing on Romani dance. We'll survey Romani community traditions from throughout the southern Balkans--from Serbia southeast all the way to Turkey. Come learn the basics of a variety of Romani line dances, as well as solo-style dances like čoček and 9/8 Roman. Beyond the steps, we'll talk about how to model Romani dance style, gender differences, and important cultural background concerning Romani dance practices.
And then...we'll see where our interests take us! Alex is versed in various regional dance traditions including Serbian, Greek, Macedonian, and Albanian dances. There will be something for everyone--come one, come all!
The class will have a private Facebook group for community building, and classes will be conducted via Zoom.
Mondays, 6:00 p.m. Central
Suggested free-will donation $15 per class or $50 for four classes.
