Saratoga Springs, NY, Feb 15, 2013 — 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 gather for a "flurry" of dancing and music at the Saratoga City Center each Presidents' Day weekend. The annual Dance Flurry Festival is celebrating its 26th anniversary this weekend. You'll find 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. Todd Moe stopped by the event last February and found thousands enjoying wall-to-wall music and dance.
