Here are two pieces of info that may be of interest to the Slavic SIG.
1. There was an article about East European Roma in The Seattle Times
newspaper Sun Feb 6, 2005 "Nations pledge to improve Gypsies' lot"
seattletimes.nwsource.com/ . If folks can't access the article and would
like me to mail a copy, they can contact me with their snail mail address.
2. There will be an Armenian dance class near Seattle in March (copy of

We have a rare opportunity in Seattle area to learn some traditional

America, Europe and more recently Dubai. She is the artistic director for
the Hayrig Mouradian Children's Song and Dance Folklore Group. She will be
teaching variouse traditional dances of Armenia on Saturday, the same class
will be repeated Sunday for those who work on Saturday. Her class will
include a handout that briefly discusses the history of Armenian dance,
step instructions on the dances, and some songs that go with the dances.
There will also be some CDs for sale for those interested in Armenian music.
