THE COUNTRY DANCERS OF GREATER LA

HOME

Contra dancing has a heritage stretching back hundreds of years, but contemporary contra dancing is not an obscure historical relic. Rather it is a thriving social activity enjoyed across the country and around the world by large numbers of people of all ages.

Dancers get swept away as they become one with the music, interacting with each other as they move and weave through the patterns they create. Each figure and movement is taught and every dance is prompted by a caller, so advance knowledge is not required.

James Hutson, a veteran caller and teacher of contras, squares, and English country dances, is known for his clear instruction, precise timing, and high energy calling. His reassuring manner puts even the most neophyte dancer at ease. He was co-founder of the Culver City English Country Dance series and has led dance workshops at various festivals and other events throughout California and the West.

Live music will be provided by a trio of the region’s most accomplished dance musicians: Bob Altman on keyboard, Linda Kodaira on fiddle, and David James on mandolin. Their music is hauntingly beautiful and offers tremendous variety; sometimes sweet and melodic, at other times absolutely driven with a pulsating beat.

The Country Dancers of Greater Los Angeles are attendees at regularly-scheduled dances in Culver City and Monrovia. They will demonstrate some intermediate-level dance patterns, then they will help guide participants through some simple, accessible dances in an encouraging, friendly manner. The informal social atmosphere is energizing, mesmerizing, and just plain fun!

Alan Salazar

The mission of Alan’s educational program is to enrich the Chumash and Tataviam component, one of the oldest tribes in America. Alan helps fulfill the state required curriculum on Native American studies. But, most importantly Alan puts a real face on the history of the Chumash and Tataviam culture.

Alan says, “I present my history, my family’s history, my tribe’s history in a way that helps students understand. To help them realize that the Chumash and Tataviam are and were a strong and vibrant culture…How did they survive, what made them unique and where did they live? These are just a few of the questions that I will answer. The students touch, feel, sing and listen to the story of the Chumash.”
