Deadline to Register: August 29th at 5:00pm

Title: Dance: “International Folk Dancing”

Description: Experience the music, rhythms and dances of various countries such as England, Scotland, and beyond! No prior experience needed. We’ll start with simple social walking dances, and work our way each week toward some of the more complex, iconic dances as the month progresses. Join us for a great way to learn about other cultures in a friendly environment that exercises your mind and body. This class will meet for 4 consecutive Thursday evenings from 5:30-7:30 pm. beginning on September 5th.

Instructor:  Amanda Albrecht has been dancing since the age of five. She began performing folk dances in 2009, and has been working ever since to expand her own knowledge of various types of cultural dances, and to share them with others. Her dance repertoire includes swing, hula, tango, two-step, cha-cha, waltz, polka, and contra. She has performed Scandinavian folk dances internationally with the Sons of Norway team from Poulsbo, WA, and has served the Bozeman Folklore Society as instructor, committee chair, and president. For the Folklore Society, she taught folk dances from England, Romania, Scotland, Israel, Ireland, Armenia, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Japan, Brittany, Norway, Assyria, Ukraine, Austria, Greece, Serbia, Turkey, Sweden, Macedonia and more! You can probably find her on some dance floor in town 2-3 times a week.
