Balkan Music &
Dance Workshops
Virtual Camp

While we regret the cancelation of both our Mendocino and Iroquois Springs workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to have presented our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps, each with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered. Our East Coast Virtual Camp (August 14-16) is now complete, with over 380 attendees!

Registration is now closed for both camps. Stay tuned for more EEFC-sponsored virtual events & classes!

Free Survey of Yiddish Song Style Workshop, online

April 19, 2020 at 2:00 pm – 3:45 pm

Yiddish folk song condenses all the emotion, humor, and salty directness of Yiddish language and culture. Song style includes breath-based ornaments, free changes in register and rhythm, flexible melodies, and ornaments such as the krekhts (sob), zifts (sigh) and dreydlekh (turns). In this online workshop we’ll listen deeply to some great Yiddish folksingers, learn songs together, and explore stylistic techniques. We’ll also survey Yiddish song resources that participants can enjoy at home.
