Full schedule coming soon!
For now, here’s what we know:
Saturday morning into the afternoon, we’ll have opportunities to familiarize ourselves with the idiom of bal folk dancing and music, in all its forms. There’ll be workshops in the ballroom, along with mini-bites of dancing during the breaks between workshops. There’ll also be musicians’ workshops in the “bar” upstairs.
Before dinner, we’ll pause for a concert open to the public, where our featured bands will give us a moment to absorb the complexities and subtle beauties of Western European traditional music.
And immediately following dinner, we’ll reconvene to dance the whole night away into the early hours of the morning. Upstairs, experienced session leaders will host a musicians’ jam for tune learning and sharing.
Sunday morning, we’ll have some more workshops, then say farewell to each other with a daytime bal.
