Balfolk is a popular dance movement that has reinvented traditional European social dance forms and music as a vibrant dance experience. Partner dances like waltz, mazurka, Scottish and polka sit alongside group contra-dances, circle dances and mixers (dances structured to rotate partners) that are simple to learn and invite improvisation.
