ColinSays   When I started calling it was mainly barn dances, working with Kafoozalum.  Their leader, Peter Jenkins, taught me two Kolos - this one and Djacko (also available on this site), and said "If the crowd just won't get up for anything, we do the kolos.  The band go down into the middle of the room, you grab an attractive woman and demonstrate the dance, and they'll get up and dance it." And he was right, so I recommend these two to anybody struggling to get a barn dance going.

Music:  Own tune, gradually getting faster - see first link.
