Rosenberg, Paul Community Harvest Dance History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
With a combined half-century of experience, the dance/music educators of Homespun Community Dancing create enjoyable, wholesome participatory dance and music events. Your library supplies the atmosphere—cornstalks, hay bales, cider, pies and books – for the event. Homespun supplies the dance caller and musicians on fiddle, guitar, gourd and modern banjo, and tin whistle. Homespun leads participants in square, contra and circle dances brought to America from Europe and Africa. Connect with centuries-old traditions and celebrate the bounty of the harvest as generations of Americans have done. Traditional dancing helps build a sense of community. The audience has fun working together to learn the dances. Participants experience a bit of living history - they learn firsthand how people have socialized for many generations and hear anecdotes from American (and global) history that inspired the dances and music. Community dancing develops young participants’ communication and listening skills, and improves physical coordination…dancing is great exercise! We teach about the origins of traditional folk instruments in a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures.

Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Dig deep into a cave of the earth--the Sun has been captured by a Fearsome Dragon and hidden away. The HERO of our tale is Bawshou, a young man who courageously rises to the challenge of freeing the Sun. With the help of a golden phoenix, a small parcel of earth, a magic robe, and a heroic dream, Bawshou travels afar to seek out and rescue the Sun, for the good of his people and all the land. Children actively participate as they portray the flowing river, the sounds of the sea, the playing of the gong, the dancing stars, and much much more! The artists evoke a magical atmosphere in this important Chinese tale, employing authentic oriental techniques and traditions including stylized dramatic forms and movement, mythology, exotic costumes, and unusual musical sounds. Chinese folk instruments (erhu, p’i p’a, guzheng harp, sona, Chinese Theatre drum, flutes & whistles, and gong) are featured, combining to make this unforgettable performance piece a joyous celebration of oriental culture. 'Bawshou' was commissioned by the Springfield MA Museum of Fine Arts in 1994. (see accompanying Chinese Dragon Mask Workshop/Parade).
