Any information at all would be greatly appreciated. Weather it be about the steps, the costumes, or the music:) Thank you sooo much!

Any as I'm immensely undereducated about it! We've been told that apparently we can't do a gypsy dance b/c we have two little kids in our group -gags-. They only have 5 years of experience and our dancing with us! Well after the audtions last week maybe they won't be anymore. Our instructor pretty much refuses to give us any information seeing as it would be useless.

From my (very) limited knowledge (I apprenticed with my Director's in their senior school class a few years back, where they taught a Gypsy dance, as well as at festivals and such), Gypsy dances involved seductive movements, acts of theft and authority (eg. men commanding women), etc. I know one that stuck out was where the women counted money for the men while the men whipped each other and such. Whips are a common theme.
