Dances of October 18, 2003 at the Salvation Army Gym, 7-10 PM

The dance was a bit different this time. Those that went to the
Romanian work shop in Edmonton, AB. Canada with Lia and Theodor
Vasilescu; most of us - got there early and danced and watched the
video tape of the dances - to see which ones we knew the best to
teach to the rest of our group that didn't go. The following are
the dances that were taught to us by the Vasilescu's. (We tried
these up to #10, until we ran out of time)
