Dance Performance by Jodaam! a new dance troupe. Jodaam is an amalgamation of the Portuguese words for Play (Joga), Dance (Dansa), and Love (Ama). Jodaam is a dance un-group created by Anna Botelho, who started the dance program at Google, and a former teacher here at Friday Night Waltz. If some of the dancers look familiar, that's because they used to belong to another dance troupe, Decadance, a local favorite for the past 20 years. The piece today, "Ex's and Oh's" is choreographed by Anna Botelho and combines Lindy Hop, Swing Rueda, Jazz, and Contemporary dance. Please welcome Jodaam!
