The European project funded by Erasmus+ Sport, FOLKDANCES, is a remarkable initiative aiming to encourage children to become physically active and explore the beauty of traditional dances. The project takes place in three countries, Slovakia, Hungary and Croatia, and aims to create an environment where children can safely share their passion for traditional dances, learn, and practice these ancient art forms. Not only is FOLKDANCES promoting physical activity, but it is also fostering intercultural dialogue among children from different countries. Through the exchange of ideas and experiences, it establishes a transnational network of traditional dances enthusiasts, promoting and preserving cultural heritage across the European Union. While sedentary lifestyle has become a growing concern, initiatives like FOLKDANCES are vital in encouraging children to unplug from screens and gadgets, and engage in immersive, ever-evolving activities of the kind that traditional dancing provides. Let’s support the FOLKDANCES project and help ensure that future generations appreciate our rich cultural heritage
