Christchurch, New Zealand
Do I have to have previous experience?
No. We try to choose the dances to match the level of experience of those who
are present. Beginners are always welcome.
Do I have to bring a partner?
No. Most of the dances don't require partners. For those dances which do we can
usually work things out.
Do I have to become a member?
You may choose to become a member, but this is optional (and currently costs $5
For special occasions such as parties some costumes are available for those who
wish to borrow them. We wear ordinary clothes on regular evenings. You don't
need a costume to dance.
No, definitely not. This is purely voluntary, and there's no pressure to do so.
Where does the name "Farandol" come from?
Farandol is named after the Farandole, an old courtly dance from Western
Europe. We chose this name because we liked its sound, not because of any
particular connections between historical dance and Farandol's repertoire.
Well, what I could find out so far is that it's the name of a dance in
Southern France and Northern Spain.
