New Orleans: Folk Dancing!

Filed under: Dance — castiron @ 12:08 am

Thursday night I took a break from the meeting to go dance with Crescent City International Dancers. It’s quite a fun group doing a good variety of dances; many were familiar, a few were different from what I’ve learned (like their version of Biserka Boyarka, which looked like Setjna to me), and a lot were new to me. I enjoyed dancing with them.

CCID, like Houston International Folk Dancers, does a more complicated dance to Miserlou than Austin IFD does — they do the dance that we’d just do to Never on Sunday. I wonder how widely spread that variation is.
