Nutbrook International Folk Dance Group: Day Courses

Saturday and Sunday 28th and 29th September 2019
Mariette van Gelder
International Dance Weekend

Join us for our 40th Anniversary Celebrations

Mariette led some lovely dances on her visit three years ago, featuring Macedonian, Israeli and Croatian amongst her repertoire.  Her enthusiasm was infectious.  We look forward to another selection of partner and non partner dances (no need to come with a partner).

The SIFD AGM is a formal meeting for SIFD members, but non-members may also attend as observers.

The buffet is scheduled for 6.00 pm, but the time may vary slightly depending on the length of the AGM.

While this is not specifically a costume event, if you have a costume and would like to wear it for the evening dance, please do so.  It is also hoped that some participants will be able to wear costumes for the reception at 4.00 pm, (but note the practicality that this follows straight after the afternoon course).
