The East European Folklife Center (EEFC) was established in 1982 through the love and dedication of a core group of musicians and dancers. Today, this ever-growing and expanding organization brings together an inclusive, celebratory, and welcoming global community of passionate amateurs and professionals, to respectfully share the richness and complexity of Balkan music, dance, and cultures.
Find out all about our annual East and West Coast Balkan Music & Dance Workshops, affectionately known as Balkan Camp. Learn about the EEFC: how we are structured, how to become a member and where you might apply your expertise as a volunteer.
