Folk dancing in the streets of Riga

folk dancing in Riga

Folk dancing is a big thing in Latvia and that's what my 3rd mission on the Latvia Challenge was about. I had to find somebody to teach me the basics and go dancing with her at the local folk bar Ala Pagrabs.

Luckily I was just catching up with Vita who was introduced to me by Zane Enina a Latvian blogger whom I met a year before in the Yukon. Vita told her colleagues at !Mooz agency about my challenge and they reached out to their network of friends as well. Within an hour I got in touch with Eva Kokina who is in a Folk dance group called DA Perkons. Social powers at work right there!

Watch me shake those hips below... ;-)
