Wow! Festival is this Saturday. Here are some handy reminders:
Peer Gynt lines up in the order of the Seksmansril groups, although that is the second dance after the huge circle of Klappdans.
Remember that the Klappdans music has been shortened to two choruses – one clapping, the second time shaking finger at partner.
Seksmansril is the regular length. Remind the group leaders to form their circle mid-stage to the back so they will be in the spotlight.
Then Peer Gynt forms the back, taller dancer line and Fjell og Fjord is the front line with Maija and Beatrix. Hold hands –
left, right, left, bow and front row off first WAVING, then second row off WAVING. Please take a group photo right after the
performance at the backdrop.
