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 Karoline, Teresa, Aljosha, Ilya, Maik, Eva, Selma, Gregor, Maya, Maxi, Renske, Meike, Robin, François, Kira, Florian, Lena 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 before booking your place.

Currently scheduled workshops:

The following wishes were mentioned while inscribing to the festival: figures for couple dances, mazurka, carnaval de lantz, tango, fandango, bourrée 3t, irregular/regular waltz, polka, repasseado, maraîchine and polska. Hopefully there will be somebody to fulfill a wish or give some other great workshop.

Music and Singing Workshops

From the second day onwards, we offer music workshops from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Because of a limited number of participants, you have to enlist during the presale.
After the workshop all the participants can give a presentation of their new skills to the other guests of the festival.

These are the workshops currently planned:

Please take note: Music workshops on the same day are parallel to each other. You can only join one of them. If you are registered for a workshop, but want to switch to another one or not join at all, just write a short message to
