Gran Bal Trad is a festival dedicated to traditional dance and music, born from the desire to put in contact different forms of dance and musical expression. It offers participants a varied collage of examples from the various cultures of Europe, including a broad cross-section of our own Italian traditions.
The festival, with the help and constant support of the Municipality and the Pro Loco (Board of Tourism) of Vialfré, is organized and managed by the GBT Cultural Association, in collaboration with five other cultural associations. The members of these groups, united by their passion for music and dance, lend their time and effort on a voluntary basis to make Gran Bal Trad a reality.
Each day of Gran Bal Trad offers a variety of dance and instrumental workshops from which to choose, both in the morning and in the afternoon. On-site restaurant and bar service is offered. And evenings feature dancing until dawn to live music on 5 big separate dance floors.
More than 250 teachers and artists from all over Europe have been invited and will conduct daily workshops and conferences in dance and instrumental music, as well as evening concerts and dances.
The logistics of the festival are managed by more than 150 always cordial volunteers, available to provide every service, including reception, restaurant, bar, cleaning and security. Gran Bal Trad is five days of full immersion in traditional dance and music, in which thousands of people will be spectators and participants at the same time
