International Folk Dance Holidays

Bognor Regis International Dance Ensemble


This section covers folk-dance holidays B.R.I.D.E. members were involved in:-

Dance in Cappodocia, Turkey, Apr 30 - 10 May 2015 (See our photos from the Cappadocia Turkey 2015 Photographs) Two of us attended a dance course organised by Turgay Onatli, Ahmed Turan Demirbag and the Kilikia group from Nottingham.

International Dances in Seville 2014, October 11 - 19, 2014 (See our photos and videos from the International Dances in Seville 2014) This started as a short break with the promise of Flamenco - if we were lucky. We were certainly lucky and found traditional dancing from other regions of Spain as well as Bolivian.

Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, Wales, July 7 - 11, 2009 (See our photos from the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod 2009)
We applied, never thinking we would be selected but they liked our video, so off we went with a small team of dancers and an even smaller band.

Song and Dance at Lake Ohrid, Aug 1 - 12, 2005
Grown-up members of B.R.I.D.E. joined other English dancers as well as a large Dutch contingent to learn Macedonian dancing in a hotel on Lake Ohrid just a few hundred yards away from Tito's old summer residence

Christmas YU-Folk Festival, Belgrade, 24 Dec 2001 - 2 Jan 2002 (See our photos from the Christmas YU Folk Festival Belgrade 2001/2 Photographs)
The two of us travelled to Belgrade for a seminar organised by friends of Ciga and attended by people from all over Europe.
