Biana de JongBased in the Netherlands, Bianca has choreographed and taught many of the dances we love and also taught by other Master Teachers. Among her many dances are Tu Romnie, Devetorka na baba, Askin Cesi Mi, Ashun daje Mori and Gatij ëd gòj.
Bianca de Jong has been teaching folk dance since 1977. In 1981 she qualified as a folk dance teacher, officially recognized by the Ministry of Culture in the Netherlands. From 1978 on Bianca studies Bulgarian folklore and travels to Bulgaria. She visits amateur and professional ensembles, researchers, and (village) dancers. From 1983-1990, she visited Turkey regularly to study folklore. From 1981-1995, Bianca has organized folklore tours to Bulgaria and once to Turkey.
Bianca is actively involved in training folk dance teachers. Teaching folk dance is a great passion of hers and she considers the teaching as an art and craft in itself that brings a lot of fun! Her basic philosophy in teaching is that it should be done in such a way that you can describe it as “learning by dancing”. Read more…
