Dance Flurry swings through Saratoga

Listen to this story
Saratoga Springs is known for its mineral springs, race track and Revolutionary War battles, but it's also a popular gathering spot for those who love social dancing. Thousands gathered for a "flurry" of dancing and music at the Saratoga City Center earlier this month. The annual Dance Flurry Festival celebrated its 25th anniversary over the Presidents' Day weekend. There were dancers of all ages enjoying everything from African to Zydeco.

Originally, it was a one-day event near Albany back in 1987. Since then, the Flurry, as it's called, has evolved into a three-day winter gathering, drawing musicians, teachers, callers, volunteers, and of course, dancers from across the country. As Todd Moe found out, families have grown up coming to the Flurry and for some it's an annual tradition.
