6. Choral Group and/or International
Folk Dancing anyone?
We are having discussions about developing a choral group and/or
International Folk Dancing as part of the
offerings of BWSSCWoW.
Milton Elder and Jerry Cantor have kindly provided information
about developing a BWSSCWoW
We are considering the idea of INTERNATIONAL FOLK DANCERS
of volunteer participants -- no
registration fees -- who would
provide community service by performing free at senior centers,
and other community
events, like the Burke Centre Festival,
the Hawaii Society, etc. We will be looking for volunteer
-- and I am thinking of asking my daughter-in-law
or her mother to teach us Irish folk dancing. Participants will
to purchase costumes as part of their volunteer participation.
If anybody is interested in either
project, do please email me
so I can gauge the interest among seniors of the projects.
