New Civilization News: Greek Night Returns to Cafe Danssa    
 Greek Night Returns to Cafe Danssa
picture 6 Mar 2004 @ 09:55, by Letecia Layson

In January I attended a Reunion of the Intersection. I began folk dancing in 1970 while staying with my sister, Carolina, one summer in Los Angeles. What an amazing night the reunion was! I got to see many of my old friends and connect with people I use to perform with as the Intersection Dancers, Panegri, Gypsy Camp and an brief stint in an Arabic Folk group. I was amazed at the love so present in the music, in the connections and in the dance.

At one point in the evening a haspiko came on. All of our old dance teachers got up and formed a line to dance together once again. It was beautiful to see! As in any small village (300 of us total), we arranged ourselves in a spiral, circling around these elders. At the front of the line were those of us they taught and performed with. Looking around the circle I sensed a feeling of community that is unique to this group of people.

I am delighted to know the energy of the night shifted many of us and the dance, like our connections continue.....
