8-Jan-05 Romanian workshop for the SIFD


Time: 10:30 to 16:30

Venue: Cecil Sharp house, Regents Park Road, London

We will be teaching a selection of traditional "village" dances from the regions either side of the Carpathians; Mărginimea Sibiului, Ţara Oltului, Întorsura Buzăului (southern Transylvania); Argeş, Dâmboviţa (north Muntenia); Neamţ, Bucovina (west Moldavia). We have selected these dances from those we have learnt in dance groups and seen in villages and in Romania. There will be a mix of circle and couple dances. We hope that we can convey some background understanding of the regions, context and dance types during the workshop.

Our very provisional list, subject to much trimming and some additions! We have taught a few of these dances at other workshops or Balkanplus evenings, but otherwise we don't  believe that they have been introduced to the UK in the recent past.
