Perfect!

We went there on the 30st of December, we were a group of five and it was a blast!
We had so much fun, the instructors showed us I guess 2-3 different styles (maybe even one more?), told us some interesting facts about the national dance, for instance that there are different regional styles and so on. We could even try on some of the traditional clothes and dance with them! In the end we were offered some local snacks, wine and beer and had a lovely chat with the instructors. It is always great to have a conversation with local people and moreover with such nice instructors.

All in all it was a great experience and - most important - finally something different! It was a perfect program for the winter cold days (instead of a museum). Also the location is very central.

We were happy we went there!

Traditional dance class
Together with friends, I enjoyed this dance class very much. Teachers were very enthousiastic and proud of their own culture and dance. We also got some traditional Bulgarian food to taste.
