April Folk Dance Party

April 13 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10

Peninsula Council Folk Dance Party

7:00-7:30pm Tatyana Teodorovich of Russia House Kedry will teach two 19th century Russian dances and a third ancient dance if there is time. Here are the details on the dances:

In An Orchard, In A Garden (Vo Sahdoo Li…)
The song is known since the last part of the 18 century.
It was mentioned in one of poetic fairy tales by the Russian poet, A.S. Pushkin at the beginning of the 19 century.
The dance movements appear to be a late 19 century choreography, akin the style of European country rounds. It uses elements of a circle dance as well as part ner dancing.

Six-some (ShestyOrah)
Being a late 19 century dance, it is a variation on a European quadrille style of dances. It is danced in a formation of a three couples set. Repetitive figures in the formation are elaborated by various arm positions of partners.

Steel-Blue Falcon (Siz-Sukolik)
This circle song-dance is an example of a more archaic form of a folk dance. It is similar in footwork to many Balkan dances. This slower, almost meditative song-dance has a powerful feeling of a circular ritualistic movement.
