Since 1975, the Balkan Music & Dance Workshops have brought the finest available teachers and performers together with thousands eager to share the joys of Balkan traditions. With dance instruction, culture corners, instrumental, vocal, and ensemble classes, days of lessons and nights of parties, these weeklong workshops on both coasts have been an unforgettable annual celebration for a growing and increasingly diverse community.

As you may already know, tuition does not fully cover the cost of the summer workshops. It is only through the generosity of you—our community—that the EEFC continues to bring top-quality music and dance instructors together to teach us.

We’ve reached our January 31 interim goal to raise $40,000 — 10% of the estimated budget — for our West and East Coast Balkan Music & Dance Workshops. But our fundraising efforts do not end here. We still have a long way to go.

Be a part of bringing us back to each other and helping our community grow!

Your gift, no matter what size or shape, makes a difference. Why? Because it shows you support our community. It says you want to be part of the circle. Please take a moment to remember those magic, life-affirming moments you carry away with you, after the music and good-bye hugs fade. We want to keep doing this for as long as we can. We hope you do too.

Please help keep the EEFC experience alive by making a contribution.
