Balfolk

Dance yourself warm with a workshop Balfolk!

Of course there will be a workshop balfolk with Emelie and Wen at the Castlefest Winter Edition.

While in the old days the upper class was dancing boring waltzes, the plebeians were having a party much more fun! They danced their own kind of dances which are nowadays known as balfolk. For centuries, balfolk has brought 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 princess, troll or fairy. 

We can enjoy the dances we’ve learned straight away while listening to the lovely music of Andoorn.

Join Balfolk at the Yule Stage on both days of the Castlefest Winter Edition.
