This was a one example where you just go and get to see some of the differences in cultures. I was there once, on travelling, but really liked the event. There aren't to many things like that for learning about the various folk dances and not limited to the moves and steps. The group was friendly and the facilities at MIT are also welcoming, safe and to a high standard.
