Folkotheque Orfey Dance Parties

Throughout the year the BMNECC hosts parties that feature the music of “DJ Orfey” of Folkotheque Orfey.

DJ Orfey is often joined by guest musicians, such as accomplished artists like Vlado Mollov, Atanas Milev, and Stoyan Kostov. Other performers may be on hand to offer Bulgarian estrada tunes (1970s and ’80s Bulgarian pop music). Guests are welcome to bring their own tunes for DJ Orfey to spin!

Tasty ethnic fare prepared by Chef Tomov and savory desserts provided by Jak’s Bakery are available for purchase.  A cash bar is open.

Bulgarian dance lessons offered by renowned instructor Aleksandar Zankin are usually available between 7:30 and 8:00.

Stay tuned for info on upcoming dances.
