Dance your way to fitness with exciting live, acoustic music
Active, educational fun for all ages; from 2nd Grade up to Seasoned Citizens
“All ages” means we are delighted to invite everyone aged 8 to 80 to join in!
Ethnorobics is a bit like Jazzercize set to an ethnic beat played live on acoustic instruments. You’ll have so much fun that you won’t notice you’re learning about the world and burning calories!
Over the course of an hour, participants learn line and circle dances from many different cultures.
The fast-paced Gypsy and Klezmer dances as well as great traditional party dances from Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, Denmark, Sweden, French-Canada, and elsewhere will, for sure, work up a real, honest sweat!
Tempo is everything and so slower paced dances are also done giving dancers some breathing space without bringing the heart rate down to resting levels.
WANT A CLASS IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD?
We are happy to discuss with you how you can have a class in your area! All you need is to have two things in place - a dance space (could be in your living room) and enough dancers. We can talk over those details when you contact us.
Jutta & the Hi-Dukes, Earwig Music label recording artists, have taught traditional ethnic dance since 1990 in Europe and across America including classes for the Evanston Homeschool Community as well as for the Chicago Waldorf School. Currently, Jutta and Terran teach ethnic dance at the Arcturus teacher training program in Chicago.
