Vladica and Saša return in April

Vladica and Saša

Balkanplus is thrilled to announce that our invitation for a second visit has been accepted by the highly talented duo of Vladica Tanasijević and Saša Smrekić (accordion).  The Serbian dance workshops will take place on the weekend of 13th and 14th April 2019.

On their first UK visit in 2016, Vladica and Saša gave us a fine programme of dances from all regions of Serbia.  Examples include Jovančica – aka Žikino kolo with variations from West Serbia; Sigma – a lively Vlach dance from East Serbia - and a scintillating version of Čačak from South-East Serbia.  Dances apart, the workshops are a platform for their strong harmonious singing and irrepressible humour.  As always, Ron will be producing a DVD available to participants.
