Dance Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall
Feb 18 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Dance  Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall | Rehoboth | Massachusetts | United States

The dance music jam sessions continue in Rehoboth every Sunday night from 7-9 p.m. All are welcome!

Once a month throughout the year, the session is a Community Dance, at which we teach everything that needs teaching, depending on the experience of the dancers. The Community Dances go from 7 to 9 p.m. and are preceded by a potluck at 6 p.m.

All Jammers dances are held on Sunday nights from 7 to 9 with a potluck at 6 p.m.

For information or to check about cancellations, call Bob Elliott at 774-644-1369 or email him at bobolinkelliott@yahoo.com.

The Sunday Night Jammers are a group of (mostly) instrumental (mostly) musicians, who play (mostly) Celtic-inspired dance music. Our music is (mostly) for couple dances, such as waltzes, hambos, polkas, and schottisches.

Now, to clear up those “mostly”s:
1) Sometimes we sing…or at least some of us sing.
2) Some of us are very serious musicians, some are duffers, many are in between. We are VERY polite about each other’s errors.
3) We started with English, Scottish, Irish, Canadian, and New England dance music, but we have gotten more international as the months go by.
4) After Scandinavian and German couple dances, a few Israeli line dances appeared, followed by some Greek and Balkan dances with “interesting” time signatures.

In brief, all of us have learned a lot, and we welcome others to come play, teach, learn, and, in general, have fun!

Intro to Flamenco Workshop @ The Rhody Center
Feb 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Intro to Flamenco Workshop @ The Rhody Center | Coventry | Rhode Island | United States

In this workshop you will be introduced to flamenco dance. Flamenco is a very passionate dance form that ranges from fiery and exciting to very lighthearted and playful, while always displaying purposeful and thoughtful movement. No previous experience is necessary! Using flamenco’s 12 count palos (rhythms) Solea and Solea por Bulerias, we will develop our upper to lower body coordination through palmas (hand clapping), braceo (armwork) and zapateado (footwork) exercises. We will also take some time to review the Sevillanas from the previous session. Wear comfortable clothing and a comfortable shoe with a leather sole and slight heel. (Women and female-identified folks, if you have a long, flowing skirt and clean character shoes/comfortable shoes with a low, solid heel, please bring them! Men, if you have a clean pair of dress shoes or boots with a leather sole, perfect!) Led by Elizabeth Rivera. $25, or $20 through 2/5.
