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 New Item
    • 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.

    • We’re planning a Virtual DCFF via Zoom, however for dancers who’d like to meet face-to-face, we’re assessing the viability of offering a limited-attendance IN-PERSON Festival for 2022.
    • IN-PERSON attendance will be limited to dancers who are fully vaccinated (at least 3 doses) and proof of vaccination will be required.
      • We’re working on a decision about whether wearing an N95 or similar mask while dancing together will be required or optional.
    • In order to offer the in person option, we must get feedback from the DCFF community about how many people are MOST LIKELY TO ATTEND an in person event.
    • Please visit our and take the ACTION STEPS to let us know your situation
