Take 5!

Our local Border Morris team, Breathless in Berthoud, spent the better part of the last year learning to dance in 5/4 time. Took a while before we stopped feeling like we were tripping over our own feet. ;) Anyway, we did it and premiered a dance done to Dave Brubeck's Take 5 in December at Solabration. We believe we are the first American team to do this dance, originally done by Seven Champions.

Since everyone was in the dance, there was no one left to film it. We finally filmed it at practice a couple of weeks ago. Great fun to dance, now that we can step in 5/4 time. Maybe we should try Brubeck's Unsquare Dance next, that's in 7/8.
