Balfolk

Balfolk

Of course Balfolk with Emelie and Wen will be on Keltfest again this year.

While, in the old days, the upper class was dancing boring walses, the plebeians were having a party much more fun!! They danced their own kind of dances which nowadays are known as balfolk. For centuries balfolk brings people together to enjoy dance and live music.
 
Emelie and Wen will explain the basics of different dances step by step in this introduction workshop. Everybody can join, with or without dancing experience, young or old, farmer or princes, troll or fairy.
 
We can enjoy the dances we’ve learned straightaway while listening to the lovely music of Wouter en de Draak (Wouter and the Dragon).
