Practical Info


We suggest all participants bring something to share with each other at tea.

The Maalbeek Cultural Center does not allow people to bring their own drinks. Please respect this request. This semester, Frisse Folk offers water for free to participants in the Maalbeek.
The bar (coffee, tea, soft drinks, beer, wine) will be open throughout the day.


Our workshops in Brussels are usually given in French, with translations into Dutch or English if necessary. Koen is fluent in 5 languages, so you will get individual feedback in the language of your choice.


Please arrive 15 minutes before the advertised starting time of the workshop, so we can start on time.


You should be familiar with leading or following and have at least  one year of folk dance experience.

No knowledge of music theory is required
