Sorry folks, we are cancelling tonight’s event to help people to stay well for longer in the current context.

All the best, Eurosesh xx

Note different venue and timings for March!

The workshop will be led by experienced dancers and musicians within Sheffield Eurosession. The aim is to focus on the relationships between musicians and dancers through the medium of simple melodies.
We will explore our capacities as musicians and dancers to attune to others within the room, and to generate and respond to different feelings or impulses within the framework of a traditional dance tune and form.
This workshop is for both musicians and dancers – so grab your instruments and/or dance shoes and your curiosity, attention and playfulness for a journey beyond melodies and into musical communication. The workshop will use simple tunes and dances, and newcomers to balfolk are welcome to join either as musicians, dancers or both!

Contributions: £5 donation if you can afford it. Newcomers free. All welcome.

See you soon, Eurosesh xx
