Traditional dances from E. Europe, Greece, Near East, etc., plus recent choreographies to various music - some moderately lively, some slow and meditative. Dances for enjoyment, relaxation, mobility and co-ordination. Beginners welcome. A variety of traditional and modern dances will be taught, taking into account the abilities and preferences of the group. Traditional dances will be mainly from E. & S.E Europe, and parts of the Near East. Most dances are done in a circle with hands joined and do not involve partners. There will be a selection of slow, medium and livelier dances. The emphasis will be on enjoyment and participation. Aspects of learning the dances include - co-operating with others to best do the dances; appreciation of music and rhythms from around the world; learning of basic step sequences; and attention to posture in dancing - how we hold our bodies, and how to dance in a relaxed fashion.
