Today Zyka had a special practise! We did a Juliana. Juliana is when you dance lots of sou-oudori after each other. It’s a good way of remembering all the dances you have learnt but don’t dance so often. It is also good fitness training because dancing so much is hard work. But mostly it’s a lot of fun! Learning new things is fun, but energetically dancing the dances you know is also fun. In a Juliana you get to do both! It is a good way of learning new sou-oudori that some in the team knows but not everyone.
Having a Juliana now was good timing because from next practise we will be busy practising for our last performance in Danskarusellen the 27th of March. Danskarusellen have been both fun and challenging. We have also for the first time received criticism from a jury about our dancing. Getting a knowledgeable outsiders point of view and opinions gives us the chance to develop and dance even better.
