Hand-held fans are a very important accompaniment to many dances, and they often tell stories, celebrate traditions, express religious beliefs, and pass on histories. During this presentation by "fan fancier" Robin Goettel, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the geography and cultural use of fans, as we explore ethnic dances incorporating fans in their tradition. Beautiful dance videos will be shown, including Flamenco, Balinese, Korean, Eskimo, and many others. After the presentation, the audience can view fans from Ms. Goettel's collection.
