Dance Festival in Durham

What a great event: Durham Music and Dance Festival! And it would be even greater if there was a little square dancing, too.

From this article about the festival:

“I think we are seeing a little bit of a resurgence with this Dancing with the Stars,” Wolf opines. “There was a bubble about five years ago, you know, when they had those Docker commercials, everybody was coming out to swing dance. But I think with this latest thing, more people have been showing up to learn dancing. I just think it’s great.”

Besides the high styles of swing and salsa, there will be a contradance with waltzing and other vintage moves, and the earthy, accessible grooves of zydeco.

One thought on “Dance Festival in Durham

  1. The article link is still valid, but it looks like the festival is dead and the festival’s url just goes to a commercial link site.
