South Bank, London, June 17, 2012  

 

The LGO presented a lively and colourful afternoon of music and dance performances and joining-in sessions as part of the Celebrating Sanctuary festival, marking refugee week and celebrating London's immigrant cultures.  For the dances, we were joined by the Zivko Firfov Folklore Group, who perform Balkan dances  in original costumes; Janna Eliot who demonstrated and led group dances for all to join in, and our own Gypsy Dance group, performing in traditional Gypsy-style colourful swirling skirts.
