Klezmer Dance Band with Cookie Segelstein

Playing in a band for a klezmer dance party is a fun collaboration between dance leader, dancers and musicians. Yet it’s rare when dancers, leader and musicians seem in sync. We will cover the main dance rhythms, and explore rhythmic techniques to put the necessary lift in the music to facilitate a lively dance party. Also: how to put together a medley, when to change rhythms, when to end the set, and developing signals between band leader and dance leader.
