Marshall Grange Teen Ball 2010

 Zemer Atik danced at the Spring Ball in Garden Valley, April 9, 2010.
This is the eighth year that local teens have held folk dance balls at the Marshall Grange in Garden Valley.  While predominantly in their late teens, they ranged in age from 9 to 21.  Along with the youths were a number of parents and participants from the Sacramento area folk dance community.   The parents encourage folk dancing for their children because it is a fun, wholesome, educational, safe activity with no drugs or alcohol.  Since the very beginning, the youths made it clear that they want to primarily do partner dances.  The group has been evenly balanced between boys and girls.  The girls made sure of that.  Since these children are home schooled, they did not have a prom, so this dance party is their prom.
