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!

Aaron says about their class at Virtual Camp:
We’ll be learning the beautiful traditional Croatian song “Pjevaj Mi Pjevaj, Sokole” (“Sing to me, falcon”). Together we will learn the chords, melody, stylistic elements, and lyrics. There will be learning opportunities for both instrumentalists and vocalists. I will demonstrate the foundation of the tune for beginners, and elaborate with ornaments for more advanced musicians. All ages and skill levels are welcome to join this workshop!
