Participatory Dance Music Series: Everyone dances to live music! In pairs, in chains, alone or in circles - all generations, across social and cultural backgrounds.
Today live: (Live band will be announced soon.) Dance introduction starting at 4 p.m.



Everyone dances! In pairs, in circles, in chains, in groups of several people, or alone. Live music, fun, joy of movement, and sociability in a special atmosphere. This does not sound like a stuffy and rigid dance event - and it isn't. It's BAL FOLK!

BAL FOLK is one of the forms of dance nights that are becoming more and more popular in Germany. At BAL FOLK, dances from the French regions are usually danced to live music, with the specific composition of the dance mix depending on what the band is playing. It's not about perfection, but about the joy of dancing - the dance of the day is practiced with everyone at the beginning. Dancing offers a good balance from the daily school, study, or work routine. 

The dances are suitable for everyone, with or without dance experience and without any competition or pressure to perform, as we know it from sports for example. During the balls, dance partners are playfully exchanged, so no one needs fixed dance partners. 
People of different ages, social backgrounds, and geographical-cultural origins come together casually and dance - without any dress code. Everyone is invited to participate!

Live today: (Artists will be announced later.)

Instructions: For some dances, there will be instructions between 4 pm and 5 pm. No previous knowledge is required. 

Potluck Buffet - everyone is warmly invited to bring something simple like finger food. Drinks will be sold by the team of the Lutherkirche at the event as usual. 

A project by Südstadtleben e. V. in cooperation with BalFolk Cologne
