Balhalla: Dancing on live folk music in Ghent

Balhalla ia a non profit that regularly organises folk balls at a fixed location in Ghent. It is our mission to introduce as many people as possible to the wonderful world of balfolk music and dance. Thanks to our low ticket prices and dance initiations, we keep our events accessible to everyone.

About every month we organise a ball in the Paulushuis in Ghent. Before the ball, a dance initiation is always given for people who are not yet familiar with balfolk. The evening always ends with a jam to which anyone who can play an instrument is welcome.

Balhalla is now known in the balfolk environment for its cosy, intimate, warm dance evenings. Also curious? Then come by and experience an evening full of relaxation and positive, musical energy.

We are taking a break over the summer, we will be back in september!

About us

Balhalla consists of a core group of 4 young people who love balfolk. In corona times the idea and desire to organise a ball arose. In 2022, Michael, Corneel, Dries and Margot finally joined forces and founded Balhalla vzw. Our first ball took place in June 2022, with success, after which many others could and will follow.

Each event is made possible by volunteers. Are you interested in lending a hand, one-off or on a regular basis? Please contact us at volunteers@balhalla.be. We have shifts for both dancers as listeners. We also take into account wishes to join the dance initiation, end of the ball or the jam next to the volunteer shift(s).
