IFC's SPECIAL 2020 FEATURED TEACHERS
Three of the best choreographers you'll see anywhere
We are excited to continue our IFC Revival with the following teachers:
Caspar is a rising star in the field of folkdance teachers.
Born in the Netherlands, his teaching style is impeccably clear, precise
and authentic; his selection of music is ideally suited for recreational
dance groups. Caspar has received accolades for his teaching in Belgium,
Germany, Switzerland, Turkey as well as the US. Caspar specializes in
dances from countries around the Black Sea, especially in Georgia where he
trained with a professional ensemble. You will love meeting and learning from
Favorate dances taught and popularized by Caspar include Mari Kiz and Shavlego.
Steve is known widely as a versatile dancer and teacher and
has performed and choreographed for many performing ensembles throughout
the U.S. and Europe. He is active as a teacher and researcher of dance in
Albanian and Macedonian Roma communities. Steve brings a lively, in-depth
knowledge to his teaching, and an intense joy to his dancing.
Some of Steve (and Susy's!) most loved dances include Chiculata Chikita, Sa, Gori More, Mahala Mori Shej, Ne Felj Lanyom and Primavera En Salonico.
IFC's founder, Moshe Eskayo
As founder of the original IFC, Moshe's dances will also be taught. Read Moshe Eskayo's bio.
Our band: The incredible MerakKef Express
We are thrilled that Saturday night's party will have the additional excitement of the amazing band MerakKef Express, some of the best folkdance musicians on the East Coast. They will play lots of folkdance favorites as well as some of the teachers' dances. Come hear folkdance music played live, and played well!
We are excited to continue IFC's revival! We hope you will join us for a simply wonderful weekend.
