The Tūranga Bal

Nau Mai Haere Mai! This year, Good Folk: Dances from Planet Earth are hosting Folk Dance New Zealand’s annual gathering in Gisborne, featuring dance tutors both local and from afar, visiting especially for the event. With time for old favourites and new tricks.

All taking place in a very special place out east. Make a long weekend of it (ANZAC falls the Tuesday following) and connect / reconnect with old folk dancing friends.

Calling all musicians! Ever wanted to play for dancers? The Balfolk dance workshops at this weekend feature parallel musician workshops. Learn the tunes, practice on the day, and be part of a magical evening of Balfolk dance on Saturday night.

We cant wait to see you here!
