The Flurry Hits Saratoga

LIKE MUSIC?  LIKE DANCE?
Then you have to be in Saratoga, NY this weekend for the 26th Annual Flurry Festival, February 15th-17th, 2013.

From 7pm on Friday through 6pm Sunday, The Flurry is a celebration of dance and music from around the world and offers almost non-stop workshops and performances throughout downtown. With events for every level learner, there's certainly a variety offered from Contra dancing, Cajun, Swing, English, Latin, HipHop, Indian, African, Waltz, Tango, Disco, Zydeco, Celtic, Balkan, Blues - the list goes on and on! Workshops and performances both run throughout the day and into the wee hours of the morning, but most of the dance parties are at night.

Literally thousands of people flood downtown each year for this festival. Even if you do not enjoy dancing, it's definitely worth it to go and enjoy the sights and great music. If you're there, be sure to stop by and say hi to SP's Jenna Caputo while she is teaching at many of the Savoy listed events! Support the local restaurants and businesses while you're out too - there are always great deals going on downtown during the Flurry. As any past Flurry participant knows, you never know what will happen at the Flurry!
