What: Folk Dancing for Everyone
When: Tuesday evenings during the warmer months â€“ Free Lessons from 7:00 to 8:00 PM; dancing goes on until 10:00 PM
Do warm evenings just make you want to get up and dance? Well, youâ€™re not the only one! Even if you havenâ€™t the slightest idea how to folk dance, hereâ€™s your opportunity to kick up your heels, enjoy the wonderful Boulder outdoors, meet fun people, get some exercise, and have a lot of fun.
Tom Masterson, choreographer and teacher for Postoley Dance Ensemble, is coordinator (or should that be â€œcoordinatedâ€? â€” probably both descriptions of Tom are accurate) of this weekly get-together. He specializes in Russian and Ukrainian dances, while other guest artists, including Boulder International Folk Dancers, will feature Israeli, Scandinavian, and other regional folk dancing.
With magical, sometimes-unpronounceable names like Schuhplattler, Mazurka, Tirge, Kleistos, and Nevestinskoto, an exotic experience is sure to follow. Then again, you may learn some dances with more familiar names like Irish Dance, Hora (Israel), Jig, Reel, Hula, Square Dance, Polka, etc. No matter what themes the evening takes on, a good time will be had by all.
