November 12, 2016 at 5:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Eastern European Folk Dance Party and Potluck Dinner featuring live music from SIX local ensembles

The ensembles are: Barbelfish, Planina, Sherefe, the Bitovniks, Ansembl Teodosievski, and Gora Gora Orkestar.

Live folk dance music starts at 5:30 pm and continues until 11:00 pm. From 6:00 till 10:00 pm the potluck dinner and dessert will be served. All guests are encouraged to bring a dish to share.

The dance music program will feature tunes from Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, and Roma (Gypsy) traditions. The majority of dances will be line dances, plus a few waltzes and other couple dances. Many of the dances are easy enough to learn on the spot and there will be strong dance leaders present. Everyone is invited to dance, but no one is required to do so; the Avalon has plenty of room to sit and watch. Some of the groups will perform on the stage and others in the center of the dance floor.

In Eastern Europe, live music and dancing are always accompanied by food! So roll up your sleeves, make a great dish, and come celebrate at the Avalon Ballroom, on Saturday, Nov. 12! Don’t know what to bring or don’t like to cook? Please contact Mary Ann, the food coordinator, at for assistance/ideas, etc.

For volunteer and potluck information please contact Mary Ann or 720-936-5055.
