Virtual Dance Room Followups

    • February 2020 Dance Theme was that all dances in Sets 100 and 500 for 2/18 and for Set 100 on 2/25 used the common musical instrument known as the Human Voice - i.e. all songs played for theme dances were vocals!
  • March 11, 2022 - Tribute and Life Celebration for Atanas Kolarovski (in process) New Item
    • It appears that we had a winner on March 18th
    • Dierdre Rees (Belmont, MA) says that she said a "WILD GUESS" of WOMEN on 3/18, but did not put her guess in CHAT.
    • So Dierdre won the marvelous prize this time around and will tell you about it when she receives it.
  • April 8 & 15, 2022 - Dance Program Themes
    • For Set 400 of the VDR dance program for April 8th Barbara Merson's Theme was a Tribute to and Celebration for Moshe Eskayo who choreographed many dances that became popular in International Folk Dance Circles.
    • Moshe moved back to Israel in 2020 and passed away on April 5th at the age of 90.
    • For a brief bio of Moshe Eskayo, visit: https://socalfolkdance.org/master_teachers/eskayo_m.htm
    • The Mystery Dance Program Theme for Set 100 from the April 8th dance program continued for Set 100 for April 15th.
    • The Mystery Theme was the percussive elements of Snaps, Claps and Slaps!
    • Martha Awdziewicz (San Diego, CA) proposed that most of the dances in Set 100 had claps and/or snaps.
      • Martha's missing component was slaps, but that's close enough for folk.
    • Martha guessed 2/3 of the Dance Program Theme from April 8th and 15th so she and her dancing cat Alfred will get a 2/3 prize.
    • So Martha and Alfred won the marvelous prize this time around and will tell you about it when they receive it.
  • June 10, 2022 - Dance Program Theme New Item
    • For Set 100 of some VDR dance programs in May Earlier in May Set 100 there was a theme where there were several sets of dances shared the same first letter. There was no rhyme or reason to this pattern - it was just a theme.
    • So what are we honoring in the June 10th Set 100 theme?

  • 43rd Annual Door County Folk Festival (Online/Virtual)
    • We've had to postpone the In-Person aspect of the 2022 DCFF as in-person registration was not sufficient for the economics of an on-site, in-person event
    • We believe that DCFF was the first weekend dance workshop to go online at the beginning of the pandemic (2020) and we've continued the tradition by rapidly re-engineering this year's virtual event for Zoom
    • The Door County Folk Festival will again be a Free Event, however we really encourage you to make very generous donations to the Festival in order to help us offset the significant costs we encounter in production.
    • We thank those folks who have already made donations to DCFF in advance.
    • DCFF in-person at the Color Club will be open to anyone able to come to the Chicago Area
