Exploring Balkan Rhythms and Dance - Dum Dum Diddily Dum Dum

Mandy de Winter teaches and demonstrates traditional Balkan dances

Mandy's great love for Balkan music and dance led her to develop a course called Exploring Balkan Rhythms and Dance (Dum Dum Diddily Dum Dum) which provided participants with a detailed introduction to the varied and often irregular rhythms so common throughout the region.

To accompany the course, she produced two teaching DVDs in which she demonstrates a range of Balkan dances in great detail; not only explaining, for instance, the difference between a Makedonsko and a Râčenica in 7/8 metre, but also showing how to teach the dance (and a lot more besides).

These DVDs represent an extraordinary body of work which was originally only available to course participants, but which is now available to everybody in the form of the two DVDs or as downloads of individual dances.

Each DVD comes complete with a CD of the music and a booklet giving the dance notation and notes about the dances. Downloads include the video clip, the MP3 music track (sometimes more than one) together with the dance notation and notes.

Every penny raised from the sale of these dance videos will be donated to the Severn Hospice in Shropshire, where Mandy spent her final days.
