Living Room Dances
Now that we are all at home and unable to attend classes, we have decided to present some dances that can be done at home. These dances have been posted on Youtube and Facebook at the links indicated below. Check back as this page is updated. As you can see we have a mixture of adapted folk dances, adapted popular dances and dances that we have created for our program using music that the participants like. Do you have a special request?
We invite you to dance with us. Happy dancing everyone!
