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 offer our first-ever, completely online Virtual Camps. Virtual Camp West Coast (July 17-19, 2020) was a great success, with 350 people registered.

Registration is now open for East Coast Virtual Camp on August 14-16, 2020, with three days of immersive classes, live-music performances, and community gatherings. This camp is geared toward the USA East Coast and will run on Eastern Time (UCT-0400).
