Jody Kruskal and friends share their collection of circle, square, and line dances, playground games, and sidewalk songs. When the music starts, you can’t help but dance to the joyful sounds of the fiddle and concertina. Clear and friendly instruction is guaranteed to get everyone on their feet and moving to the beat.

Like the dancing masters of old, Jody draws on numerous cultures for his material. A single session might include old-time dances and singing games from the Southern States, New England, Scotland, Russia, Puerto Rico, Israel, and African-American traditions.

Children love the challenge of mastering these engaging dances. Teachers appreciate the way that traditional dancing fosters a spirit of cooperation and respect.
"We thought you were GREAT with the students. You're really good at what you do... a very inspiring evening.  Thanks so much, and we'll book early for next year"
