Dance Workshops

What would a Bal Folk festival be without its dance and singing workshops? Quite boring we thought and reserved two halls from the second day onward. Workshops will be from 1 to 3 pm. Time to wake up, have breakfast and learn! :-) Last year, lovely people were willing to share their knowledge. We thank Florine, Inja, Maik, Pippa, Maja, Maxi, Gregor, Melanie, Yarince, Sibylle, Francis, Martijn, Meike, Lore, Hilde and Ralf. Without your effort and your contribution our previous New Year’s Eve festival would have not been the same! :-)

We are happy to invite you to run a workshop and to enrich our festival program. If this sounds good to you, please contact us via:

The following still unfulfilled dance course wishes existed so far with the registration:
Poitou, Arin-Arin, Dance technique, Viennese waltz, Mazurka, Congo de Captieux, Branle d'Ossau, Kapverdian Mazurka, Fandango, Leading and Following, and because it doesn't fit anywhere else: Acro Yoga.
Maybe someone will be found who may fulfill one or the other wish or can offer another great course. The still undecided can of course also spontaneously offer a course on site.

Already planned workshops:

Music and Singing Workshops

From the second day onwards, we offer music workshops. Because of a limited number of participants, you have to enlist during the presale. If places are available, you can still join spontaneously at the festival.
After the workshop, if possible, all the participants can give a presentation of their new skills to the other guests of the festival.

These are the workshops currently planned:
