"ROMANA Dancing Festival"

The 2nd edition of "ROMANA Dancing Festival" cultural project was launched in Brasov, which lasts for two days and aims at diversifying the cultural-tourism offer of our town by making a local community festival event permanent. The goal of the organizers is to make the most of the European cultural heritage through historical and contemporaneous dancing. The 2nd edition of "ROMANA Dancing Festival" takes place between July 10th ? 11th 2015 and will start with 2 pairs of dancers in a carriage who will perform historical dancing demonstrations in different locations from Brasov: Livada Postei, Coresi, the Council Square, etc.

Free training

"Apart from the professionals performing on the stage of the festival, there will also be a section dedicated to amateurs, consisting of two groups of dancers, who were trained for free from May 11th to July 8th 2015. 43 participants divided in two groups signed in. The project includes dances dated from the 16th ? 18th centuries, like: branle, volta, chaconne and bourréez. Branle and chaconne were the most popular. The project turns out to be very attractive and we are happy to see that people show interest in learning old dance styles", said Mrs. Lorena Domocos, the Project Manager.

Reviving the historical dance

The organizers say that they had in mind to revive the ROMANA society historical dance at its first edition, as it contributes to redefining the cultural identity of the community from Brasov and to a better identification of young generation with the common values. This is also the reason why this festival was named after this dance.
In the olden days, dance styles of folkloric origin appearing in Europe used to cause strong reactions among the Romanian intellectuals from Transylvania, which is why it was decided that is was time to create "national" dance styles spreading among Romanian intellectuals.


Organizers: Brasov County Council and "Casa Muresenilor" Museum from Brasov, in partnership with Reduta Cultural Centre, Brasov Opera House, Ars Saltandi Association, the House of Culture of Codlea Municipality and the Association of the Knights of Barsa Citadels.
The project is funded from the budget of Brasov Municipality.
