For the last couple of years in Atlanta, amateur videographer Jim Crawford has embarked on an adventure in being a contra dance ambassador. Each week, Jim films the caller and band in one or more dances per evening, and then posts those videos on You Tube. Here is Jim’s recent lovely video called “CCD – Why We Contra Dance”:
The adventure began while Jim was serving on the steering committee of the Chattahoochee Country Dancers. The board decided to make a series of videos on beginning contra dance lessons, taught and narrated by local callers, and demonstrated by local experienced dancers. Jim got drafted to film them. This series is distributed to new dancers at CCD via a CD after the beginner’s workshop – but many of you have now viewed these lessons on You Tube as well. As time has gone on, Jim has gotten more creative and is even branching out to other local dance groups.
Please feel free to share with your friends, and be sure to check out Jim’s other videos of the vibrant Atlanta dance community.
