Dance club BalkanRytmer offers dance classes in Balkan folklore dances. The club started in September 2012 and has classes for beginners and for advanced dancers.
By joining our club, you can learn a great variety of dances from the different ethnographic areas in Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, but we are not limited to dances from these countries, only – we practice attractive dances from other countries of Balkan and world, too!
Everyone is welcome in our club: children, young people and adults. We rehearse in room 1.4 in Folkestedet, located on Carl Blochs Gade 28, 8000 Aarhus C.
By joining the BalkanRytmer classes you will learn the most common dances and steps as well as exciting and diverse choreographies, developed by the dance instructors of the club. The most passionate dancers will have the opportunity to perform with BalkanRytmer at different festivals and cultural events.
BalkanRytmer organises and joins also dancing events outside the classroom. If you want to be up to date on the upcoming Balkan dancing nights, follow News page on this site or our Facebook page.
We believe that the Balkan dances and music provide a great context for starting new friendships. That is why we often organize social events for our members such as: parties, dinners and other social gatherings.
Join BalkanRytmer and learn to dance a great variety of chain dances from different ethnographic areas of the Balkan region. We dance the most popular dances from the Balkan countries such as Sirtaki, Kalamatianos, Hassapikos, Pravo Horo, Dunavsko Horo, Stara Vlajna, Ravno Oro, Leskovačka Četvorka, Vlasinka and many others.
Great variety in terms of dynamics, even and uneven music beats with odd and quite complex time signatures are typical for the Balkan dances.
The Balkan dances are very popular and are part of the everyday local life on the Balkan peninsula. People have the chance to enjoy those dances everywhere they go in the Balkan region – local restaurant or tavern with live music, weddings, birthdays, holiday celebrations and many other occasions.
Furthermore, there are special discos where only folklore music is being played. Folkloric music is played all night long and there are even dance competitions between dancing groups from different dance clubs.
