Dear Mrs or Mr,

I’m Wouter Vanderbiesen, leader of the folk dance group “De Boezeroenen” from Hasselt in Belgium. We are looking for a folklore festival where we can participate in this summer (in the month of july). If you know a group or folklore festival that could be interested in inviting a young and dynamic Belgian group, you can contact me!

We can also do an exchange with a group of your country, because we organise our own “International Folklore Festival of Hasselt”. Our festival will take happen in the middle of august.

In attachment you will find more information about our group and our festival. To get an impression and more information of our group, you can also take a look at our website:
