1 . Workshops and seminars Talofa!

1a. Nunspeet, October 20 – 22, 2000

On October 20, 21 and 22 Mundo Etnico organizes a weekend seminar in accomodation centre “Duiventil” in Nunspeet. During this seminar the dances, songs, games and music from the educational programme Talofa! will be taught (see book and cd shop). This is going to be a remarkable weekend. There is not only dancing, but we’ll also sing Polynesian songs and play Polynesian music (though you do not have to be able to read music nor play an instrument). We will also be making dance implements and play children’s games. All activities are connected to each other. When we dance about “tinned fish”, for instance, we will also taste a Samoan dish with tinned fish during one of the meals. The dance implements that we will make, will also be used in the dances. It is going to be a busy, creative weekend in which the dance classes by Lucia Linkels will be accompanied with live music. The programme brings you many hours of dance and other fun. Not only for children but also for teenagers and adults. Classes will be in the Dutch language.

1b. Dworp (Brussels), October 28 and 29, 2000
