Taste the Balkans by learning traditional Bulgarian folk dance. Immerse yourself in the culture of Bulgaria and feel the joy of dance. Bulgarian folk dances are intimately related to the music of Bulgaria. The distinctive feature of Balkan folk music is the asymmetrical meter, built up around various combinations of 'quick' and 'slow' beats. We’ll start by traditional warm up, followed by learning folk dances from different regions. Many Bulgarian dances are line dances in which the dancers dance in a straight or curved line, holding hands.
