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.
