Hi, how are you? Hope this email finds you healthy and safe.
I`d like to share with you some information about my virtual parties.
During these difficult times of self-isolation, I’ve put together a calendar of virtual events that will keep our Folk Dance Community connected to both the music and the dances we all love and allow us to find new ways to share and be together while still apart.

Scandinavian Dancers of Vancouver Virtual Dance Session Aug 26

On Wednesday, August 26 at 7:30 pm PT, Scandinavian Dancer of Vancouver will hold a Zoom session.  Anyone interested in peeking in or participating is very welcome.  Just click on this link Virtual Scandinavian Dance and we’ll send the Zoom URL and all the information you need.

Given that we are unable to meet in person, we have been gathering via Zoom to get some exercise to beautiful traditional Scandinavian music, and some “different” music we have been throwing in just for fun.  In each virtual session, we teach a dance that can be done without a partner.  Then during the open dancing part of the evening, we play some couple dance music so people can dance inside their “bubble” or just listen.

The tentative plan (all in PT) for the evening is as follows:

  1. 7:30 – 8:00 pm Pacific time Join In and Social Time
    – When you get on Zoom, you’ll be put in a “waiting room,” and from there you will be let into the dance.
    – Other than during social time (7:30-8:00 and 8:50-9:10) please keep your audio muted to maximize sound quality
  2. 8:00 – 8:20 pm Dance Teaching – MALMÖ MAZURKA
    – Taught by Janet Gabites – “No […]

“East Coast” Virtual Camp August 14 – 16, 2020

Happy Saturday, everyone!
After a really fun “West Coast” weekend, we’ve decided to do it again–with an East Coast twist. Join us for our second Virtual Camp on August 14-16, 2020. Our website will update with faculty and performers as they’re added, and you can register here. Read on for additional details!
__________
In 1977, the EEFC offered the first of many wonderful getaway Balkan Music & Dance Workshops. In 2020, we’re excited to roll with the punches and debut our online edition, which you can enjoy from the comfort of home.
Thanks to high-speed internet, we continue to welcome new friends and old to our community of musicians, singers, dancers, and those who love them. Beginners and advanced practitioners will continue to “rub shoulders” while benefiting from the expertise of our extraordinary teaching staff and enjoying bliss-inducing live-music performances. We can’t provide the traditional rustic redwoods setting nor a superb glamping experience in the Catskills, but this Virtual Camp weekend retains our signature style—an immersive learning experience that opens hearts and minds to the beauty of Balkan music, dance, and culture.
