Humor, love, kindness and joy are universal. Folk Dance builds a bridge where we are offered a glimpse into another culture and are delighted to find ourselves looking back. A country’s musical culture can also offer insight into its history, spirit, values, and heart. We can appreciate and begin to know a little about a people when we move in their footsteps. These delightful gifts, traversing not only cultures, but generations, can lead to greater awareness and global understanding. This lively workshop will introduce participants to folk dances, passing games, play parties, rounds, and clapping games from twenty countries around the world.
