Yay!  BNP Night!

hfm


The Bohemian National Polka is finally being taught at FNW, for the first time in a year and a half.  BNP is on the bucket list for all serious FNW dancers.  It's also the most widely known polka choreography in the world, danced by over a million dancers in dozens of countries.

7:15-9:15 pm - Richard Powers and Rocky Aikens teach a special intermediate class in the Bohemian National Polka, with time enough time for all of the details, including perfecting pivots.  Whether learning it for the first time or catching reminders of the many details, here is a rare chance to have a full class in the BNP, taught by the choreographer himself.

Here is a video of BNP at the Stanford Viennese Ball.  You'll notice that some couples danced it beautifully, and some wished they knew it better.  Join that first group by taking this class!

You can also watch 134 YouTube videos of BNP here, from the U.S., Russia, France, Italy, Brazil, Corsica, Uruguay, Portugal, Japan and Korea.

Intermediate level means that all participants should already know how to do any kind of waltz or polka.  If you are a newer waltzer, be sure to arrive for the start of the class at 7:15 pm.
