    Balkan Romani dancer, Linda Gjojgeva Toteva, who performs Gypsy Romani dances and can lead guests into a Balkan Ceilidh. A Balkan Ceilidh, is a set of line and circle dances, which both guarantee audience participation as well as a vivid memory for all guests as they are introduced to a new fun, new cultural experience.

An event with BALKAN EXPRESS guarantees to be hugely interactive for each guest, as everyone is invited to participate and learn Balkan style barn dances. Supported by vibrant tunes and melodies courtesy of a five-piece live band, Linda Gjojgeva Toteva, London’s only Romani dance performer with authentic Balkan Romani roots, leads guests in learning Balkan style barn dances. An event with Balkan Express ensures not only a fun and energetic evening but also a vivid memory for all as they are introduced to a new fun, new cultural experience.
