Part of the SF Free Folk Festival:
Barn Dance for all ages
How do we dance online together?
It takes imagination, willingness to have fun, and wanting to enjoy the live music.
Dances will be taught, then called with the music. No experience is needed.
You can watch, listen, dance solo, or with another (or stuffed animal), or maybe you have a bubble with 3+ dancers, or you can mute yourself and play music along with the band.
Some dances you can interact with a friend on the z00m camera, and others you imagine a partner or others in the group.
If you invite a friend to join the online event, then you can "dance together" by pinning their video to your screen, and play around with making it fun.
Live music by Back Pocket:
Jess Newman , fiddle, stomp percussion
Will Wheeler, guitar, foot percussion
Dance teaching/calling by Claire Takemori.
Donations go to the band!
We will break from 3-4pm PDT, then have a Family Dance at 4pm PDT. Family dances are geared to the ages that want to dance. We will also offer songs, games, and a dance for stuffies.
Or if there are only contra dancers, then we'll have a set of contra dances!
See you dancing soon!
