Dutch Dancers on Tour

It was a special occasion when Josh’s girlfriend Thakshila Upasena invited our Dutch Dancers to be part of an international festival at Burlington County College where she works. Thakshila was one of the organizers of the affair.

And so we went, Lolly, Lauren, Susan Miller from a Highland Park synagogue, and Susan and I. We offered two humble dances plus a short presentation of our traditional outfits and the various regions in The Netherlands they represent. We had a lot of fun, saw other dancers from Ghana, Liberia and countries in Asia. We also had a lot of international food for dinner.

Thank you, Thakshila, for your hospitality and for including us in your program!
