Pourparler

BACKGROUND

Website: http://nfo-usa.org/pourparler/.

Information: Meet and enjoy wonderful callers, teachers, and dance and music enthusiasts while singing, dancing, sharing teaching techniques, discussing important dance or music-related issues, and creating enduring friendships.

The content each year is different, reflecting the needs and skills of the people who attend. In the past they have learned dances from many traditions and discussed teaching techniques, repertoire, costuming, music, school curricula, and self-employment.

The name Pourparler comes from the French word "to speak," and connotes a get-together or a chat.

Pourparler is a function of the National Folk Organization.

Pourparler, founded in 1997, is held annually in various cities across the United States toward the end of the year.
