Join Ethnic Dance Theatre on a journey through the Balkans. We set out on Friday, May 17th, at 7:30 p.m. and also on Saturday, at 7:30 pm, with our last departure of our three sojourns on Sunday, at 2:00 pm.

Come with us as we travel the Balkan peninsula, which sits at the crossroads of the two continents--Europe and Asia, and thus, at the crux of two major religions, Christianity and Islam. We begin our journey with dances from a regional along the Kupa river in Croatia. MILA Vocal Ensemble completes the Croatian set with a bouquet of songs. We make our way south through Albania, then enjoy dances from Serbia and neighboring Romanian to round out the first half. After the intermission we continue heading south on the peninsula to Macedonia followed by a set of songs by MILA from the Sephardic Jews. Dances from Greece are followed by a musical set by the EDT Orchestra from Turkey. Dance traditions from Bosnia are followed by the closing sets of Bulgarian songs by MILA and a Bulgarian dances by the EDT dancers.

There will be a brief Question & Answer opportunity after each show along with teaching of simple folk dances on stage with the accompaniment of the EDT Orchestra.
