dutch crossing workshop

What is Dutch Crossing? Joseph Pimentel describes it as: "This very cool eight-couple dance makes for a bonding experience as everyone cooperates intensively to get the carnival-ride buzz." The original "Dutch Crossing" was written as an English country dance by Ernst van Brakel of the Netherlands. Joseph's "Yankee Dutch Crossing" version includes a balance & swing for extra contra dance satisfaction. Workshop takes 1-1/2 hours to teach the figures and dance through completely.
