Join us for World Folk Dance with Janet! In this class, we will learn the moves to traditional folk dance dances from around our world, focusing on a new country (e.g. Israel, Turkey, Ireland, etc) each week. Janet will share artifacts and flags from each country and we will explore the world and learn how people move through dance! We’ll also do some of our Willowbrook folk dance favorites each week and of course, we’ll always end with the Pata Pata. No experience necessary, we'll teach you all the moves. Join us for all six classes in the series, or drop in for any one or more.
