Bulgarian Folk Music & Dance Seminar, Plovdiv

Dear Friends of Balkan Music and Dance,

Please take a moment of your busy life to consider sharing with us the joy of going back to the roots of traditional Bulgarian folk dance and music!

Summer is always full of festivals and other events worth attending, but our Bulgarian Folk Music & Dance Seminar, taking place in the beautiful and ancient city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, is unique because of the way tradition comes to you.

Our rich and one-of-a-kind program couples the teaching expertise of instructors from the Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Plovdiv, Bulgaria with the music and dance wisdom of tradition bearers from around the country. Many classes will be taught by village "masters" from various ethnographic regions in Bulgaria; the dance program, in particular, features different groups of dancers and musicians throughout the week, teaching dances and songs from their own villages. The instrument and singing classes will be taught by some of the finest teachers in the country. All classes will be translated from Bulgarian into English by experienced interpreters. A Bulgarian language class will also be offered, as well as optional evening social activities.

The Bulgarian Folk Music & Dance Seminar, now in its 7th year, is especially designed for non-Bulgarians (or Bulgarians interested in connecting with their "roots" music and dance) who want a more in-depth opportunity to learn Bulgarian traditional instruments, singing styles, and dance than is normally possible for groups or individuals traveling to Bulgaria. Please, refer to our website for more information. We are continuing our special 15% discount for members of the East European Folklife Center (www.eefc.org), and Bulgarian participants are also warmly welcomed at a special price of 30 leva per day.

Participants from past years have raved about their experiences at the Seminar. The many photographs, student comments and information from previous Seminars available on our website (http://www.folkseminarplovdiv.net/) can give you a taste of this amazing experience! You may also take a look at the Seminar's new Facebook page, Bulgarian Folk Music & Dance Seminar, Plovdiv (or just search Plovdiv Folk Seminar).

Please mark these dates and consider becoming a part of our big family!
