NMCC – Fri 10/16 6-9pm, Dutch Crossing and calling recovery skills

New Mexico Callers Collective meeting

Callers, Dancers, and Musicians, join us for supportive teaching, dancing, and fun.
1. Recovery skills: see the NMCC Handbook
We’ll start by discussing recovery for when a dance breaks down, how to recover, and how to train your dancers to recover.  It may not have been your fault, but it’s up to you to pull things together again.
 Erik to practice teaching that fiendishly challenging yet ultimately satisfying dance “Yankee Dutch Crossing”, the contra-fied version by Joseph Pimentel (2004) of the Ernst van Brakel “Dutch Crossing” (1990). The four-part dance for sixteen dancers with the characteristic “Xs and Os” clockwork right-and-left stars.
