FRIDAY 13 JULY
Dance Workshops Late Night Dance
A great introduction to Highland dancing. No previous experience necessary. Please bring soft-soled dance shoes if you have them.
A look at some steps collected in the north of England, primarily Lakeland Hornpipe steps from Cumbria. The workshop will also look at other styles such as competition steps collected from North-East England danced to a dotted hornpipe rhythm. Suitable for those with some step dance experience. Hard-soled shoes or step dancing clogs.
Stockholm-born researcher, dancer and choreographer Mats, has a wealth of knowledge of traditional dances from around the North Atlantic. In this workshop he will teach, Dannsa nan Flurs, a Cape Breton set solo step dance, which he will also be presenting about at the symposium.
Try your hand (and feet) at a variety of set dances and couple dances from a range of cultures represented at NAFCo 2018. Everyone is welcome, and our callers will lead you through the steps. No experience necessary!
