More folk dance lessons

DUE TO an increasing interest for the Dance Houses held every first Tuesday of the month in Bratislava's V-Club on SNP Square, organisers have added another lesson. The second lesson of the month will take place in Petržalka's House of Culture on every third Tuesday of the month.

The first of the mid-month lessons will start at 19:00 on April 15. Students from Bratislava's University of Musical Arts will teach the dances, while folk band Muzička (Little Music) will play live. Tickets (Sk70) will be on sale before the lesson starts at the Dom kultúry Zrkadlový háj (Zrkadlový háj House of Culture) on Rovniankova 3. Tel: 02/6383-6776.
