What to expect?

Folk Dances are simple dances, performed to express joy and happiness. These dances are performed for every possible occasion, to celebrate the arrival of seasons, birth of a child, a wedding and festivals. The dances are extremely simple with minimum steps or movement. The dances burst with verve and vitality. Men and women perform some dances exclusively, while in some performances men and women dance together. On most occasions, the dancers sing themselves, while being accompanied by artists on instruments. Each form of dance has a specific costume. Most costumes are flamboyant. While there are numerous ancient folk and tribal dances, many are constantly being improved. The skill and imagination of the dancers influence the performance.

You will even be able to try some dancing movements with the performers just for fun !
Come over to Circular Quay with family and friends and enjoy the pure cultural experience of folk dance during Bastille Festival Sydney 12th to 15th of July 2018.
