You should all know that László - charismatic Hungarian dance teacher - is leaving soon to go back to Hungary! We need to give him a proper goodbye ;)
You should also know this old Polish and Hungarian expression:
"The Pole, the Hungarian — two good friends,
together they dance and drink their wine ;)"
So come and dance with us :)

We invite you to be a part of our annual Camp Garden Work Day!
June 3, in Grafton, Ontario, when we clean up and prepare the garden for planting.
This garden serves the Plast kids summer camps that take place all of July, provides kitchen herbs all season long, and is a source of fresh organic vegetables for the Folk Camp kitchen!
You'll have a chance to contribute to the community, learn about soil, direct seeding vs. transplanting, herbs, composting, and more. Kids are welcome to come to hang out and play, or join the work activities as well.
Donations of transplants are welcome!
To participate, write to bhrycyna [at] gmail.com
Spring is coming folk lovers!
That’s why we decided to organize an evening of Eastern European social folk dances to gather and welcome Spring!
Featuring dance workshops and live music from Poland, Ukraine, Slovakia, Hungary and Latvia!
In the glow of an old stone fireplace, James Nowak unfolds the medieval folktales of Orfeo and St. Margret and the Dragon. Dana Sipos dispenses story-songs that have lingered long under the Northern stars. Kosa Kolektiv and Folk Camp serve tea, homemade snacks, and open with a Spring song.
We are pleased to host Tales By The Hearth~Fire Stories~Fire Workshop, led by Jeremy Campbell, at 180 Maria. Join us for a casual sing-along and fireside sharing after the workshop.
