ABOUT THE DANCE COURSE OF THE CZECH PHILHARMONIC

Let us invite you to "little" dancing! Regular dancing classes in the Rudolfinum with music by Antonín Dvořák, Bedřich Smetana, and other Czech composers will conclude with a ball featuring live band.

The program is based on a musical part but also on a spoken word that will be given in Czech language only. The program will not be supplied with English subtitles.

The ticket to Dvořák's Dance Course is valid for the entire course, which includes nine meetings on: 
10. 1. 2022, 24. 1. 2022, 31. 1. 2022, 14. 2. 2022, 28. 2. 2022, 21. 3. 2022, 28. 3. 2022, 4. 4. 2022, 11. 4. 2022

It is not possible to buy a ticket for individual events.

Let us invite you to "little" dancing. Learn the polka, waltz, sousedská, mazurka, kvapík (gallop), třasák ("shaking dance")… And also the Czech beseda, the original Czech quadrille that conquered the world.

Regular dance lessons at the Rudolfinum with music by Antonín Dvořák, Bedřich Smetana, and other Czech composers are open to wide public regardless of age, sex, experience. You are welcome but not required to come in pairs.

Dress code for the classes: casual (ladies of this period look particularly good in long, wide skirts), soft shoes without high-heels.

The dancing course will conclude with a ball featuring live band on 24th April 2022 in the Rudolfinum.

- the Sunday ball on 24th April 2022 from 6 to 9 p.m.
