Dances are chosen to suit all ages and abilities including beginners. Although Saturday performances include amazingly athletic Ukrainian dancing, we will be taught folk-dancer friendly, accessible, mainly non-partner dances.
But there is much more to the Lyrids festival than learning new dances! Remember the dance party on Friday night and all the dancing during the many breaks, Orkestar RTW’s beautiful music on Saturday night, brilliant performances, the festival market, the abundant food, snacks and beverages, and, most important of all, the camaraderie with all the other people that share our love of folk dancing. This is a festival not to be missed!
This year , I am posting all festival emails to the News tab of the website. Check out the previous emails for all the details!
