Goli and the little dancers

Yesterday, Goli went busking at Quincy Market in the late afternoon...


Girl in a dress pulled her mom in to spin circles with her during this tune, then started developing her own dance for Four Chord Rock Song:


As Goli played Imaginary Friends, another child began dancing towards them from the other direction, and after a few minutes the two little dancers were in the same frame about halfway through the song. Goli gradually attracted several more children to form a colorful improv dace troupe, then recruited some of them to sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" with the band.

Parents had trouble collecting their kids, who really wanted to stay and dance some more to Gypsy RoadCollapse )Girl in a dress got an extension, so she got to stay for Let the Bottle Circulate and a cover of Paul McCartney's Calico Skies. After one more song it was time for Valerie to pack up and go.

[ Here's one link to this whole set of videos, which covers only about 1/3 of Goli's time at Quincy Market yesterday. ]
