Virmalised weekly online practice – Monday’s 7.30pm

Tere kõigile! Virmalised – Sydney Estonian Folk Dancers would like to invite you to join in our weekly e-rahvatants practice rehearsals via Zoom, from the comfort of your own home!

Our session starts at 7:30pm (AEST) every Monday night, however, you are welcome to join us whenever it comfortable and works best for you.

Our sessions are casual and open to all levels of experience, and we encourage everyone to join in.

We will be revising the basics of dance and polishing the basic steps of Estonian folk dance, including the gallop, reilender, polka, voorvalss (a type of waltz) and labajalg (flat-footed waltz).

While everyone’s regular schedule continue to be disrupted, us Estonians know how to manage in difficult times and we welcome you all to join us in some digital dancing from abroad.

We also thank the generosity of the Sydney Eesti Selts in allowing Sydney Virmalised in the use of their Zoom

Please contact or their facebook group Virmalised – Sydney Estonian Folk Dancers for details of the Zoom meeting.

Näeme varsti!
