To cover all forms of Dance, Classical, modern, folk Pop whatever
How about this for a start I don't know what it is called but if only I was this supple.

OK this was only for starters, I am sure there are a lot of good dance videos out there

I remember seeing this on TV what year does it come from mike?

Well the title/caption above says 1934, the year I was born. Vaguely recall the same or a similar act appearing on TV in the 50s.

They do look a bit undernourished, and skinny legs to match.

Beautiful Colin, lovely music, exquisitely graceful dancing. Thank you for posting it. It seems I need to delve more deeply into Khachaturian's music and watch more Ballet videos.

Try his Violin concerto, I heard it live at a concert a couple of years ago it is a truly virtuosic work

Thank you, I will. This is a very busy weekend but I will listen to it during the week. I was wondering why this topic is in the Architecture, Painting, Photography thread. Would more of the group find it if it were a separate thread in the Music discussion area?

It is the "Other Arts" category being Dance but if you you go to unread threads they all come up even, would you believe the Organ stuff :shake:

A bit of folk dance



I've seen this group on a number of occasions at folk festivals, but they have not been around for a couple of years now. (Video quality is not that good, but the lively action and colour are evident.)

The first clip is faulty Mike but the 2nd was OK.

This is:

The Morris Dance a form of English folk dance to show the sideof the aggressive male
