FROM THE BALLROOM TO THE BOLSHOI: CLASSICAL DANCE   

The ballroom to the Bolshoi! Polkas to pirouettes! Dance music comes in countless varieties, and over the years, some of the greatest classical composers have given it their attention. Mozart wrote minuets, Bach sarabandes, and Chopin crafted some of the finest polonaises. Viennese waltzes require graceful motion and a sense of the beat, but so do tangos and fandangos. When it comes to choreographed ballets, swans and gauchos both have a place. Eastern European folk dances have their advocates, though dance rhythms of more exotic cultures in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and certainly the Western Hemisphere also earn attention Presented by music historian and regular OLLI instructor Betsy Schwarm, this six-week Wednesday morning online course covers a range of styles and influences, with dance-flavored classical works you’ll know and others that may be new discoveries.
