The Dancers

(p.161) Chapter Seven Folk Revival Connection
Cajun and Zydeco Dance Music in Northern California
Mark F. DeWitt
University Press of Mississippi

This chapter focuses on revivalist dancers. Just like revivalist musicians, revivalist dancers had accumulated strong cadres in northern California with well-developed social networks before the enthusiasms of a few of them turned to Louisiana French music. International folk dancing provided a pool of people who were curious about other cultures, and who welcomed the challenge of learning new dance steps and styles. The chapter profiles the following individuals: Gary and Maryanne Canaparo, Paul Strogen, Ron Rumney, and Dana DeSimone.

Keywords:   revivalist dancers, international folk dancing, Gary Canaparo, Maryanne Canaparo, Paul Strogen, Ron Rumney, Dana DeSimone
