The Dance Gypsy presents

Folk, contra and traditional Dance Musicians and Leaders Leaders in New jersey

Welcome visitor

This (optional) map includes “clickable” links to the those performers for whom the Dance Gypsy knows locations (or has anapproximation based on an educated guess). Clicking on a “dancer pin” takes you to the description of that performer. All performers matching your description (whether or not there is a known location) are included (in alphabetical order) below the map. You may click on a marker or scroll down to those listings without waiting for the map to complete. The back arrow will bring you back to the map.

Note that all locations are approximate — the intent is to aid you in finding nearby performers. At best, they locate the performer’s home town. They cannot be used to find an actual residential address.

Judi Rivkin

Appears as: caller and leader

Plays for Contra and English Dance

Homebase is in (or near) Princeton, NJ

Notes: Judi’s goals as a dance leader are to maximize dancing time through initial clear and concise teaching; offer “style points” to raise the level of dance; call in such a way that dancers feel she is their “personal prompter” – hearing the calls if you need to, without intruding on the music; and create an atmosphere that is comfortable for all, and conducive to goodwill and learning. She never forgets that dancing and socializing in the community is meant to be fun, that discretionary time (and funds) are at a premium, and that there’s more than one way to learn a dance.
