Dutch Dancers At Hofstra – Again!


I don’t know, but when Erie Beemsterboer decided to put my daughter Allison together with me into the lead position of a dance called Gort met stroop, she caused a calamity and a blessing at once. The calamity happened, because neither Allison nor I knew in those moments right from left. Had we been engineers, we would have derailed the train, but this way it just ended in chaos. The blessing, however, came when the audience at Hofstra University’s annual spring festival understood this to be endearing.

And this year’s show at Hofstra continued in this vein. Never before did our group receive so many comments and signs of appreciation. The accompanying pictures show this well: lots of laughter, affection and joyous swirls. And the weather was simply gorgeous. May 4th was a great day for our Dutch Dancers at Hofstra University.

Thank you, Erie, for having organized this so well!
