Folk Dance Group Pääsuke 40: To the swing

"The soul is at ease and forgets it's misery for a little while. A swing has the same importance to this folk as does a gate for Easterners. The young and the old come together; fathers take pride in their sons, mothers in their daughters.

(C. H. J. Shclegel, 1819).

Swinging is a form of entertainment that has been practiced by Estonians through centuries. The village swing site has always been a place that unites people: you could enjoy the ride alone or in company; a youngster and a grandma sat next to one another. The swing ride was usually accompanied by people singing and dancing.

Just like the Estonians have come together to the swing site, the 15 groups of all ages of  Folk Dance Society Pääsuke will come together in Alexela Concert Hall on the 23rd of November.

We will ride the swing together with RIFFARRICA and Sänni Noormets.

„Kiigele“ („To the swing“) is a concert in two parts and so much more than just your regular folk dance concert. With the concert, Pääsuke is also celebrating it’s 40th jubilee. We invite you to come ride the swing with us!
