About the Dances:

In The “Magic Mamaliga”, I think the “Mamaliga” means “polenta”.  So we have “The Magic Polenta” reminding me of a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon where the green glop on Calvin’s plate talks back to him before Calvin finally eats it.  It has a couple of tricky moves that make it both frustrating and fascinating.  I really like this dance, taught here originally (and I think choreographed) by Daniel Sandu.  Zarah is an Israeli couple dance danced to a cha cha beat—a wonderful dance introduced at August Camp in 2004 by Don Schillinger.  Alunehlul in Hora is a Romanian line dance introduced by Theodor Vasilescu, not too difficult, in a regular 2/4 meter with nice music!   Beliolot Hakayit was introduced to us by Scott and Kathleen, and resurrected by Jane. It’s fairly easy with very nice jazzy music and fun steps—another of my favorite easy dances. Salamati is a nicely choreographed line dance from last year’s August camp—not too hard but with some challenging figures and good music.  A dance from the recent Iliana Bozhanova workshop, Pleteno, is difficult but wonderful.  I keep getting requests to review it even after having retaught and reviewed it a number of times—which is fine by me; I love the dance.  Consisting of three parts, each of which could be a dance in itself, it is in a 13/8 meter—12 12 12 123 12 12—or six “dancer’s beats”: 1 2 3 4 5 6, or QQQSQQ.  Iliana had taught the dance just once previously, to a group in Oregon, because of its complexity and degree of difficulty.  Maxixe, aka “Brazilian tango” (although truly it would be more of a “Brazilian polka”), is a dance popular in the ragtime era and early 1930’s, and more recently in our group in the ‘80’s and ‘90’s.  You can see some fragments of the dance on youtube with Irene and Vernon Castle, https://youtu.be/dIj9dq-nKew, or in the 1933 over-the-top movie with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, “Flying Down to Rio”, also on youtube.  A great dance!  Finally, we get two weeks with Denis reviewing two amazing dances, Adama Ve Shamayim, and Chibuk Bachashecha, plus he’ll teach a new dance Elef Mechazrim.  The latter is not too difficult and looks like a fun, playful, individual dance:  You can see all three dances on youtube, the latter at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o34yy-E__m4

Gotta get out on my bicycle—see you Saturday!
