Klezmer and Balkan dances with live music
with Georg Brinkmann, Stefanie Hölzle & Daniel Marsch
in cooperation with the LAG Tanz RLP e.V.
The lively music of the Jews and Roma of Eastern Europe and the Balkans is usually played in concert in this country. With the rousing rhythms, however, the legs of the listeners twitch involuntarily. No wonder - after all, Yiddish dances and Balkan dances were and are danced to this celebratory music at weddings and other festivities for days and nights! All age groups are integrated, you usually don't need a partner and you quickly have the opportunity to communicate with others and find your own expression. The simple basic steps of the circle and line dances develop to the music as if by themselves, are easy to learn even without previous experience and are a lot of fun. Although there are of course many good sound recordings, it is a special experience to dance to authentic live music.
