Welcome to the inauguration of BARNLEK 2023. We gather outside Lerum's gymnasium and start the festival with singing, music and balloons. Children from the different countries will show their co-dances. The inauguration will end with a big clapping-rocket! You do not need to wear your national costume, but please wear your BARNLEK t-shirt!
There will be plenty of chances to dance at BARNLEK 2023. Dance courses with exciting dances from the different Nordic countries will be offered during the day. Instructors will show and explain the dance before we dance together. There will be an easier level för the younger dancers and a little more difficult for those who are older.
During the evening dances the dances will be easy and fun to participate in. In the end of the evening the dance floor will be open for those who wants to dance, play or sing with out instructions.
During the festival, you will also be able to dance performances in the city and participate in the National performance programs where all participants participate.
We sing together in all languages both in courses, in dance and in play. At every meeting we sing songs from two different nordic countries. How do you sing a birthday song in the other countries? Here you have an opportunity to learn the birthday songs.
Obviously, BARNLEK 2023 will end with a splash of colour, music and joy. It will be a great dance and music performance created by the participants in “Tillsammans i Norden”. All participants at BARNLEK 2023 will be on stage during the closing. Feel free to put on your national costume.
