World Festival of Folklore Schoten 2008

The 50th World Festival of Folklore Schoten will be held from 11 to 18 July, 2008.

In 1959 members of a folklore group and the local tourist association founded The World Festival of Folklore in Schoten in order to promote folk art by presenting it to the public in a beautiful setting, being the historical castle and its surroundings.

The festival takes place every year from Friday before through Friday after the second Sunday in July. Eight to 10 high quality foreign dance ensembles present their program to an audience totalling 30 to 35.000.

It is an amateur festival and therefore meant in the first place to non-professional folk art groups of a high artistic standard. For the sake of preservation the organisers prefer authentic folklore, but they accept adaptation to the stage.

Stanford International Dancers is very pleased to sponsor another workshop led by Daniela Ivanova teaching Bulgarian, Macedonian and Serbian dances.

Daniela is an accomplished, professional folk dance teacher and performer.
She is also a very gifted choreographer and a researcher of the South Slavic folk dance culture. Daniela had degrees in philosophy, literature and cultural studies from the Institute of Music and Choreography, Sofia, and from the Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski. She was a full time teacher in choreography and co-founder of the Medena Pitka school ensemble.

She was artistic director of the Tropanka folk dance group (New Bulgarian University), choreographer of the Zornitza University students' folk ensemble, and a choreographer of student ensembles in Bulgaria, Banat and Besarabia. With these ensembles she toured France, Israel, Romania, Malta, Belgium, the Netherlands, Slovakia, and Mongolia. Her talent as an artist helps Daniela to be a very good educator as well. Her fine singing and very charming personality make her workshops more fun than work.

We meet at Flex-It Aerobics Studio, 425 West Evelyn Avenue, Mountain View, 3-1/2 block east of Castro Street, immediately past Minton's Hardware and Lumber. For more information or more detailed directions, please call Ginny at (408)733-5529.
