Bulgarian dancing

The variety and sophistication of Bulgarian traditional dancing is fascinating. The choreographies have been refined over the course of centuries. The diversity of movement, rhythms, steps, twists and jumps is baffling. They are usually performed in a group giving the spectator a sense of fluid harmony.

In 2015 we are organising a special Folk Tour of Bulgaria. It is a one-in-five year opportunity to discover the best of Bulgarian music, singing and dancing.
