Irish Set Dancers Frankfurt: Workshop 2017
2017 Workshop Weekend in the heart of Frankfurt city
Our Teachers: Annie & Bert Moran
The musicians: The Ilen Céilí Band
The last workshop was a resounding success with 130 visitors from 6 countries, and dance teachers from 9 groups from England, France, Germany and Switzerland. 29 sets and no repeats. Let's try to beat that this year!
Everyone who has booked rooms has been transferred to the new location and is being contacted individually with details, and of course will be properly taken care of!!
For those of you who know us well, the dance location is in the conference facility of the IGBAU, just a few meters from the hotel. There is an excellent connection from there to the town centre with the underground.
The best news is that all prices have dropped!!! See below for the details.
The conference facility of the IGBAU is the new dance location. The dance floor is the same as in the Flemmings Hotel - parquet, but not a sprung floor.
The location is attractive, and children friendly.
