Mitko Petrov - 14th/15th April


We welcome back Mitko Petrov on 14th/15th April for a weekend of dances from Bulgaria and beyond.  A firm favourite with Balkanplus regulars, we have Mitko to thank for introducing classics like Melnishko to our repetoire.  He is bursting with new offerings for us including a sprinkling of dances from other lands.

Lee Otterholt - 21st/22nd July


As if the Mitko weekend is not enough, we host the first UK visit by Lee Otterholt on 21st/22nd July.  Lee, a major figure on the American Balkan scene, will be in London teaching dances from the Balkans and Beyond with the assistance of his wife, Hilde, to give us a taste of his impressive repertoire.  This Balkanplus workshop weekend is slightly later in the month to avoid clashing with Iliana's tour of Bulgaria.

Bulgaria 2018 Tour with Iliana Bozhanova and Todor Yankov

Iliana announced details of another amazing folkloric tour of Bulgaria which will take place in early July 2018.  For full information, see: Bulgaria 2018 Tour.  The timing of the above tour would have normally meant missing the July Balkanplus dance.  We have therefore shifted the July Balkanplus to the third weekend.
