Richard Powers' Split Tree Waltz & More Weekend.
Traveling Dances " Some dances are done in place; some travel around the room. In some dances the man sends his partner this way and that; in others he accompanies her, on a journey around the dance floor. This weekend we will look at the family of traveling dances. These will include various kinds of Waltz, Blues, Tango, Waltz-Tango, Fox-Blues, Straight Jazz, St. Louis Shuffle, Merengue and more." -- Weekend director and Stanford dance historian/professor Richard Powers >> Music from Powers' extensive collection >> Flyer/registration link

by Jennifer Mizenko
Social Ballroom Dance has
made a tremendous come back in the past decade and promises to continue in
popularity into the next millennium. People of all ages are returning to
partner dances such as swing, waltz, tango and many others. Not only are
they returning to these dances they are adding their own twists and steps,
making the dances of their own time period and are breaking down rules and
barriers that have prohibited change in the competitive ballroom world.....link above to full article.
