Program: see dutch version of this page


Fair Trade Price

Good dance workshops are labour-intensive, both for the teacher and for the organiser. At Frisse Folk we want to pay for all this work in a fair way, but we also try to keep the workshops accessible to dancers with a limited budget at a discount rate.

You can support our vision by paying the Fair trade price, on a voluntary basis. More info
