Romani Dance Training Project with Cathy Stoyko and special guest teacher Edith Jacob. A six week intensive dance journey along the Romany trail ending with a performance on Sat.

In the first half of each 3 hour training we will practice dance steps, technique, form and character of Romani aka gypsy dances from; Rajasthan, Turkey, North Africa, Spain, Eastern Europe and the Balkans. The second half of each evening will focus on learning choreographies to perform at the May 5th Ederlezi event. A commitment to complete the full session and perform is required. First priority will go to ongoing students but, new students with some dance experience are welcome to join the project. Help with costuming and some full costumes provided for performance.
