Brian DowsettBalkan workshop Sunday 3.45:
Brian will give a taste of what to expect in the Balkan party tonight, namely a broad range of line and circle dances - from easy to intermediate level - some of which have been recently introduced to the British scene and received with great enthusiasm.

Brian Dowsett has been at the forefront of the Balkan recreational dance scene in the UK for many years. He is the leader of Barnet International Folk Dance Club, co-founder and chairman of Balkanplus and a long term member of the Dunav music group.

Brian will bring this experience to the Sunday Balkan party with contributions from the festival's guest teachers and musicians. An exhilarating finale befitting of the Balkan region!
