What's a Dance Party?
Dance Party has everything for the ethnic dancer in you. Learn kolos in the early part of the evening but then dance the night away to your favorite polkas, waltzes and kolos. Traditional favorites stir memories from years gone by and for the newcomer it offers an opportunity to be a part of the energy and excitement.
What's a Kolo Night?
Kolo refers to the word circle. Many Europeans dance this very popular dance usually facing inward with hands in a V-position. As in all dances there are variations; most notably in the footwork and the steps. Some can be very simple and others very intricate. Kolo Night is an opportunity for those who love to dance to take to the floor with or without a partner. With upbeat rhythms and lively steps your heart is bound to get a workout as will your face from all the smiling. Kolo Night is infectious.
