Rosenberg, Paul Homespun Family Dance History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
Homespun Community Dancing provides fun, engaging and educational library events that teach about life before electricity in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Homespun Old Time Community Dance takes the audience/participants back to a time when families made their own entertainment with homemade music and dance. Everyone gets involved – from ages 2 to 102 -- in easy-to-learn American barn dance favorites and dances from around the world. All dances are taught, and danced to LIVE folk music that has been known to transform even the most adamant, grimacing youngsters declaring “I will never dance” into smiling dance-lovers asking: “When is the next dance?”! We teach about the origins of traditional folk instruments including the fiddle, modern and gourd banjo, mandolin, flute, penny whistle, piano, recorder, percussion, and more. The “Homespun Family Dance” includes a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures.
