Our festival, in a slightly unusual format celebrates our roots through folk dances and introduces the tradition of Estonian dance festivals with the help of choreographed repertoire.

Besides learning to dance simple folk dances, the audience has the opportunity to admire the beautiful dance patterns drawn on the Singing Grounds by performing folk dance groups. In addition to dance groups from the city and county of Viljandi, dancers from Pärnu County, Tartu, Tallinn and elsewhere are coming to the festival. We welcome all dance enthusiasts to join us in dancing traditional dances in Viljandi at night!
