Folkraft-Europe has, since 1975, cooperated in the organization of international folk dance and folk arts Seminars throughout Europe — from Scandinavia to Iberia and Anatolia. Much more than an academic study tour, each program provides a real folklore "experience."
- a practical SEMINAR of active teaching where participants learn the dances, plus
- a scientific MEETING of passive theory where specialists talk about what we dance at the Seminar.
