Folk Dance New Zealand 21st Birthday National Workshop - 23 - 25 September - Gisborne
Rhythm & Grapevines
"Getting folks dancing out east"
Folk Dance NZ is 21 years old! To mark this coming of age in the North Island we are gathering in Gisborne for a ‘home-grown’ weekend of dance and music.
Workshops will feature Greek, Portugese and Armenian dance, with space reserved for revising old favourites. A fabulously fun dance party will follow.
Also: don't miss Machol Pacifica, 21-24 October!
