Folk dancers begin new season


Zorba, Pata Pata, Troika, La Raspa, the Maple Leaf Stomp, the Swede-Finn Mixer, the Romanian Medley and many other dances from around the world return as the Squamish International Folk Dancers begin another season of moving to ethnic music.

The Squamish International Folk dancers meet on Wednesdays, from 8 to 9:30 p.m., at the Howe Sound Dance Academy, 41340 Government Road (Eagle Run Mall) from Jan. 10 through March 14.

Instruction is provided, with the emphasis more on fun than footwork. Most are circle dances, so a partner is not needed. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Free trial night for newcomers.

For more information, call Jim at 898-2000.
