Congratulations Ira, And count two more; Anke Baeten taught the Cumbia
Semana on a Israeli dance day in Roeselare (Belgium, video will be
uploaded) some time ago and yesterday, Dimitri Verstreken taught the dance
on a beginners workshop near Brussels (unfortunately no video was taken).
Both are young dynamic dancers, starting to make their way in the folkdance
scene of Belgium. All the best!!! Rik Knaepen Brussels, BELGIUM

What do the words mean in English?? Anyone know?

Ira Weisburd says:

Hi Ira, Greetings and congratulations from Hamilton, Ontario. Your dance
Cumbia Semana was taught twice at a Line Dance Jamboree in Toronto in
November! Once just wasn’t enough. Happy Holidays, Lynn and her Canadian
Line Dancers.

Ira Weisburd says:

Thank you, Ira. My students love your dances. They dance “Seduced” and
“Cumbia Semana” very well and just love the music too. I’ll soon be
reviewing “Carioca” which we love to do. I also love “Cumbia Sabrosa” and I
use the “Seguidilla” step instead of the”rocking chair.” As my name is
really Esperanza and I was born and raised in Panama, I have danced the
Cumbia since I can remember during “El Carnaval.” Thanks again, Espi

Dear Ira I am not that fond of line dancing (dancing or teaching it) but
your choreographies are a pleasure to watch and teach. So I have
incorporated your Cumbia Semana in my classes – it has proved to be an
absolute favourite with just about everyone. All the best Tina James SOUTH

Hi Ira, Just wanted you to know that Cumbia Semana was a hit in Vegas last
weekend. The class was full and when Bev Carpenter asked how many knew it
only 3 or 4 raised their hands. Two were ours. lol Seduced was also played
on the open dancing. Not sure it was taught. Keep those great dancing
coming…… Ruth

Ira Weisburd says:

Hi Ira– Well, Cumbia Semana has done well here in the SF Bay area and now
people are asking us about Seduced. I’d like to start teaching it this
Friday if I get everything in time. Congratulations–seems like you have
another hit on your hands. Or feet! Best regards, Ruth Baratta San

video has had over 10,200 hits so far. Isn’t that great?! Take care and
will chat with you soon. Your fan and friend, Juliet Lam Richardson, TEXAS
