International Folk Dance

Fridays, 8-10:30 p.m.


International Folk Dance Club of Detroit meets for lessons and open dancing. Dances come from around the world but most from SE Europe (mainly the Balkans). We teach a few dances at the beginning, then do about 50 different dances each Friday from a repertoire of many hundreds. Most are group dances, people joined in a line with a leader, only a few partner dances, so it's mostly up to you how much you dance! Everyone is welcome, 25-30 people attend each Friday. Casual attire, *soft soled* shoes, no heels. 248-376-6992

ANTHEM A Dance for Four Women by Milka Djordjevich

Jam Handy 2900 E. Grand Blvd., Detroit New Center

Buy Tickets$25-30 general admission (+ fees), $12-20 student


The unabashedly feminine work weaves together existing and imagined vernacular dance styles to explore labor, play, and feminine-posturing. Four women execute a repetitive yet complex movement vocabulary that evolves as they rotate hypnotically within the confines of a square. Over time, the meditative rigor of their steps dissolves into a tangle of commotion, blurring the distinction between the mundane and the glamorous. Milka Djordjevich is a Los Angeles-based choreographer whose work questions perceived notions of what dance should — or should not — be.
