Folk ball Ensemble

Jonas Malfliet & Rebecca Van Bogaert
© Marc Gysens

This ensemble offers the opportunity to learn airs from the folk dance repertoire : scottisch, mazurka, bourrée, reel, waltz, forró, polska, and more. In addition, we look at the swing, ornamentation and accompaniment typical of each region. We work on playing together as a group, danceability, arrangements and improvisation. We then test out our numbers with the help of the participants of the folk dance classes and work towards a number of concerts.
