La Plongeuse: Trad-Jazz Dance Project 3/1/14

"La Plongeuse/Franco-Jazz Kitchen Party,” an innovative collaborative work which fuses traditional French-Canadian contra dancing with contemporary choreography. Performed as part of the “F.A.B” Winter Dance Showcase on 3/1/14 at the Franco Center in Lewiston, Maine, under the direction of Cindy Larock (Maine Folque Co-op) and Debi Irons (Art Moves Dance – http://artmovesdance.com).
