Albanian Dance Workshop with Genci Kastrati
February 15, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm$15
Master Albanian dance instructor Genci Kastrati will teach an Albanian folk dance workshop February 15 (President’s Day), 2016.
Genci Kastrati finished his studies at the Academy of Fine arts in historical dancing, which is the Albanian equivalent of folklore dancing. By that time he was already a solo dancer at the National Ensemble, but also became choreographer for the ensemble and presented his first complete concert in 2008. Apart from this job, Genci is also teacher at the Art Academy, the Academy of Sports and member of the scientific council of the National Centre for Non-material Culture, and occasionally involved in teaching at amateur groups. Since 2010, Genci has been teaching workshops in Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, and the Netherlands. Genci Kastrati taught at the 2015 Stockton Folk Dance Camp to rave reviews.
