Balfolk with Saskia Tomkins

Balfolk 2016 P1640284.jpg


Balfolk is an event for folk dance and folk music originating from Europe. In 2016, we explored some music and dances from France, this year we will visit Scandinavia. An exciting opportunity to learn about the relationship between music and dance. Participants will learn simple folk dances and form the ensemble (Bal) to accompany the dancers.
