Easy Joyful Balkan Dances (2023 program)

Ginny Snyder with Da! Mozhem
Workshop Area 4 / 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Members of Da! Mozhem will quickly teach simple dances from the Balkans that are family friendly.

Da! Mozhem plays and sings high-energy pan-Balkan music for the joy of dancing. D!M is a group of friends who have been playing together for well over a decade. The group has veterans from many excellent folklore bands such as the People’s International Silver String Macedonian Band, Born to Drone, Westwind, Sviraci, and the Slavonian Traveling Band. The band plays with emphasis on Bulgarian, Macedonian, and ex-Yugoslav traditions. Several members frequently travel to the Balkans to learn more about the folkloric music of the region. The group plays on traditional instruments unique to the region as well as modern instruments.
