Sicilian Folk Dance Workshop with Michela Musolino @ The Rhody Center
Apr 28 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Sicilian Folk Dance Workshop with Michela Musolino @ The Rhody Center

Michela Musolino of Terra Sangue Mare is offering a workshop on Sicilian folk dances. To open up the class, Musolino will share with students a brief history of the dances and run through a warm-up with them. Students will then be introduced to the distinctive rhythms and will learn the steps particular to two Sicilian folk dances, tarantella and ballettu. Traditional yet current, these dances are an expression and celebration of community. Therefore, the focus of the workshop is for the students to experience the joy and fun of dancing as a collective! The workshop is open to all ages and skill levels. Students should wear comfortable clothes and have clean footwear or bare feet. No rubber soled shoes allowed.

Michela Musolino is an internationally recognized Sicilian-American singer. The grand-daughter of Sicilians who immigrated to America, she has re-discovered her own cultural roots through the study and reinterpretation of the folk songs of Sicily and Southern Italy. Musolino and Fabio Turchetti have created “Terra Sangue Mare,” with percussionist Michael Delia whose eponymous CD has received excellent public feedback and critical acclaim. It’s been included in Pop Matters’ list of The Twelve Best World Music Albums for 2016 and is played on world music radio stations around the globe.

This workshop requires pre-registration.

Dance Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall
Apr 29 @ 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!
