What is the Pirate Hafla?
The Pirate hafla was inspired by International Talk like a pirate day (Sept 19). The DDD hafla in September has been the "Dance like a Pirate hafla".
The dancers dress a pirates and/or use pirate/nautical themed music.
Often the audience also dresses in pirate costume. There are many "AAAARRRRR"s, and "Avasts" and lots of drumming and dancing.
How does it work for the audience?
For audience members, this hafla will be similar to other dance events. Just know that many of the performances may be fusion pirate pieces.
- You are also welcome to dress and talk like a pirate
- As with other Hafla events, we may have 1 half or 2 halves. But we will definitely have a time for open drum and dance.
How does it work for dancers?
- You are encouraged, but not required to dress in a pirate/nautical theme and/or use pirate/nautical music.
- Know that several other dancers will dress in a pirate/nautical theme and/or use pirate/nautical music
- Live music is also welcome.
