FOLKFARO 2016 – “… na senda dos Ritmos do Mundo!”

Source: Grupo Folclórico de Faro

We’re glad to participate in international folklore festivals, dance-competitions and numerous regional performances fostering cultural heritage and art performances of German folklore dance every year. So, after 65 years of dance group history, we are still one of the most proficient amateur dance groups in Germany.

This year we have the privilege of being the first German dance group performing at the International CIOFF Folklore Festival FolkFaro in Faro/Portugal from 20th to 28th August 2016. The preparations of our 12 choreographies for this festival are operating at full speed and our 28 participating dancers and musicians are looking forward to gain enriching experience and benefit from inspiring cultural exchange with folklore dance groups from Brazil, France, Georgia, Kenya, Philippines and Portugal and with an international audience. As well, we will have performances in the surroundings of Faro, like at the Festival Internacional de Danzas in Villablanca/Spain.
