Workshop Halling & Värmland Polska with Anton Schneider (Sweden)

This workshop consist of 2 independent parts. It is also possible to participate in only 1 part.

  • 11:00 – 13:15    Halling 
  • 13h15 – 14:30  Lunch (potluck – auberge espagnole)
  • 14:30 – 16:45   Värmland polska 


We will first be dancing halling, which is a traditional solo dance from Norway and Sweden. We will dance halling without any acrobatics so you do not need to be trained for that.
After the break, we will be dancing the lively polska from Värmland, in the south west of Sweden. This polska has a lot of energy and a variation of different parts that you can improvise with. 

You can refer to the menu to find all information on general organisation of our workshops, prices and discounts etc.

Practical Info


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

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.


Anton will teach the workshops in english. If necessary, we can translate the headlines into french.


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


It is necessary to have an intermediate level in polska, so to have either followed the training with Anton the day before, or to have already followed other courses or workshops of polska.
