Dance lessons

ANYBODY interested in learning traditional dances or seeing performances by professional folklorists can go to the legendary V-Club on Bratislava SNP Square every first Tuesday of the month (except December, when the class will be on the second Tuesday, December 10). Each dance lesson in the series, presented by Dance House, will be devoted to a particular Slovak region.

According to Marián Veselský, the brains behind the project, the idea is to teach young Slovaks the basics of regional traditional dances, so that they know "what's going on, when they attend a typical Slovak wedding".

The dance teachers are all students at the Bratislava University of Musical Arts and are members of the famous Slovak folklore ensemble Lúčnica. According to Veselský, English-speaking visitors should have no communication problems, as "all these young people speak English".

The series opened with a presentation of dances from the Orava region. This month, on November 5, it will focus on Gemer region. Each lesson starts at 19:00 and lasts until 22:00. Admission is Sk50. The V-Club is located at SNP Square 12 in Bratislava.
