Dances from September 11, 2004 at the Salvation Army Gym, 7-10 PM.
(close to the order we did them in)

It was a small group this time as Russ, Missy, Marvin and
Cris were at the Bear Hug. Larissa used the syllabus Cris
provided to help me remember the dance Cris taught last
1 Heya Heay -Israel. Mission accomplished, -WITH OUT- the
benefit of music! I then taught Larissa:
2 C^ekurjankino Horo -Bulgaria
I've had problems with it in the past, so in teaching it
got through the tuff parts, and now know it better.
Then we did:
3 Kyustendilska Rac^enica -Bulgaria (Danses Folkloriques version)
We've been working on it every week. Then did the 3
dances Larissa learned by watching the Romanian teacher
Theodor Vasilescu's video of:
4 Arsul de la Calarasi -Romania, Oltenia
(EHRSH-ool deh luh keh-leh-RUSH)
5 Purtata din Vistea -Romania, Transilvania - couple dance
(poor-TUH-tuh deen VEESH-teah)
6 Pe Picior din Tinca -Romania, Transilvania. Actually only
Larissa did this one (she had to go over the syllabus
herself because she haden't danced it for awhile)
About this time Lauren arrived then Lita then Jackie.
7 Kriva Kruska -Serbia
8 Pinosavka -Serbia
9 Trite Puti (AMAN 3) -Bulgaria -Taught the 4 variations I do and
the 2 Russ does. Took about a half hour or more.
Heya Heya again for Lita's benefit.
Pinosavka -Serbia
The requests:
10 Karamfil -Macedonia
11 Vrapc^eto (vrrahp-che-toe) -Bulgaria
12 Itele (EE-tseh-leh) -Romania
13 Ugros -Hungary
14 Birchot Havdalah -Israel
15 Rumelaj -Romanian Gypsy
16 Pomas^ko Sirto -Bulgaria
17 Arap -Macedonia
18 Nevesto Carven Trendafil -Pirin, Bulgaria
19 Kritikos Syrtos -Greek
20 Joc Batranesc din Niculetel -Dobrogea, Romania
21 Tropca de la Tulcea -Romania, Dobrogea
22 Lo Ahaovti Dai -Israel (Od Lo Ahaovti Dai)
23 Skudrinka -Macedonia (to the music of "Od Granka V Granka")
Jackie wanted to know how old a dance Skudrinka was.
Was it fifty years old, a hundred? Well, I don't know.
I did say Skudrinka was usually done to the music
Pembe Oro (PEM-bay oro) -Macedonia.(It has a dance all
it's own, taught by Olga Sandolowich). So we put that on
and danced Skudrink to Pembe Oro. Jackie liked the
1st music better. There was much more but there isn't
enough room or desire to get into it here, hint:
Skudrinka=Tango? I don't think so!
24 Tocul -Romania
25 Ravno Oro -Macedonia
Trite Puti
26 Rustemul -Romania
27 Ratarsko Kolo--Serbia
28 Oseh Shaloam -Israel
29 Bekesi Paros -Hungarian couple dance
