ALIR - Mountain Dancing (American Folk Dance)

Focusing on figures which don't require a partner, we will learn the Ball of Yarn, Shoefly Swing, Nine Pins, Birdie in the Cage and other dances. Figures come from Irish ceilidh, contra, smooth mountain, and clog dancing. We use a basic step (1,2,3) or a simple walking step. Remember: "You can learn to dance if you can count to three (walk, walk, walk)!"
