DANCE from Belarus

Led by Alena Leshkevich; Kapela Bliska playing
for all interested

We will learn polkas and figure dances from various parts of Belarus, dancing in twos and in circles. We will end our workshop just like a traditional Belarusian rural dance – with an improvised polka.

Bring enough water to drink and wear comfortable shoes. For men, we suggest flat soles with the so-called “slight slip”. For women, shoes with small heels.

Alena Leshkevich is a folklore specialist, she conducted field research in various parts of Belarus (mostly in Polesia and the Dnieper region – in the southern and eastern parts of the country), and in Podlasie and Kujawy. She is interested in yearly rituals, ethnography of the gentry, dancing and singing.

Members of Kapela Bliska:
Anna Valicka – bagpipes, sopilka, zhaleika, violin
Hanna Zhohlava – violin
Svieta Kukiel – frame drum
