FACONE Tour 2017

Jan Pumpr


Dear friends,

Dvorana and the Folk Arts Center of New England are pleased to invite you on a cultural tour into the heart of Europe - into the Czech Republic.

During your travels with us you will have a chance to meet Czech folk dancers, see interesting places listed as UNESCO heritage sites, visit historical towns, meet people who are engaged in traditional folk crafts, take short hikes in beautiful surroundings, explore Prague, and enjoy different aspects of local folklore.

If you are a dancer, or interested enjoying different kinds of dancing, we would like to invite you for the pre-tour extension. You can join us for three extra days and attend the country dance festival in South Bohemia. On the program you will find New England contra dance, western-style square dance, English country dance, Czech, Mexican, and Flamenco dance, clogging, and more.

This tour is organized by Dvorana Travel for the Folk Arts Center of New England with whom we have collaborated several times in previous years. Jan Pumpr with Dvorana and Marcie Van Cleave, FAC Executive Director, are coordinators for this tour. Jan is a native Prague resident, and Marcie has a lot of experience with Czech Republic from many previous tours.

We look forward to welcoming you to Prague and the Czech Republic!


Jan Pumpr and Marcie Van Cleave
