Stages Musicality for dancers & Festival Skills @ Boombalfestival – Koen Dhondt


Info & tickets for this great dance festival


 * Musicality for dancers on the music of Naragonia  – Friday 23/8  10:30 – 12:00

Curious about musical phenomena that are common in folk tunes? And ready to explore their impact on your dancing? Then join this workshop!

The wonderful music of Naragonia is full of little treasures that we can use as a dancer. We will discover how to do variations in strong connection with the music on some of their tunes, and learn to use this skill on other music too.

No musical knowledge required. Naragonia will play in the evening!

 * Festival Skills: optimize the dance space for everybody – Saturday 24/8 12:00 – 13:30

How to avoid injuries in bourrées and spirals in jigs and cercles? How to solve waltz traffic jams? How can we free up extra space for all dancers?

Better floor management can make the dance experience a lot nicer for everybody. Most dancers have basic skills that give nice results on small or medium dance floors, but lack the advanced skills that are needed on crowded festivals. Koen Dhondt proposes interesting exercises and practical tips to share with all of you.

Pre-requisites: If you think you have nothing to learn on this topic, well … then you should definitely come to this workshop!






On vous demande d'arriver 15 minutes avant le début du stage pour pouvoir commencer à l'heure.
