Squares, Waltzes, & Couple Dances

Squares, Waltzes, & Couple Dances

This workshop explores how to navigate square dances, and the basics of waltzing with a partner. We may learn Swedish hambo, and the schottische. We’ll also study rhythm by way of Hambone – the African American way of preserving drumming traditions when drumming was made illegal for those stolen into slavery.
