Broom Dance and Other Favorite Folk Dances!

I love folk dances and love when I see someone post a question on facebook about their favorite folk dance.  I recently learned the Broom Dance from friend Leslie B. on fb and she kindly directed me to Martha Riley, who shared her directions with me and gave permission to share here!  Enjoy!  As always, if you would like the pdf, send your request to
This has quickly become a favorite with all my students - a nice 5 minute end to class- and would be a great dance to teach at a family music night!

1.  The Broom Dance

Another Broom Dance!

2.  Wassouma -

Another one I learned from the AOSA facebook page.  This one is from Suriname, a country in North East South America.  Such a great energetic dance!  The music is from "Bulgarian, Balkan and International Folk Dances" from the Folk Arts Center of New England.

3.  Chimes of Dunkirk

From New England Dancing Masters

4.  Yesh Lanu Tayish

Shared with me by another dear internet friend!  My second graders BEG to do this dance!

5.  Chilili

This is another one that is simple, yet so satisfying!  I teach this at my Hands to Hands workshops and it has become a quick favorite!

  14. Hi victim of four loan scams in this year, I had given up all hope of finding a real lender on the internet until I came across the testimony of Mrs. Lopez Carine where she spoke of the loan she obtained from Mr Nato. At first I did not want to believe it but given the sincerity that she had put in it, I then decided to address my request for credit to this man who answered me in less time then we started the procedure, he told me at the start that he was not personally taking any costs. After 2 days of exchange I see myself receiving a transfer slip from the Bank of Mr Nato. It was like a dream but believe me thanks to this man I was able to save my child take an apartment and start a new life. For all those who are in need, contact him at: / Whatsapp: +1(301) 329-5298 Above all, share your testimony after receiving your loan to save others
