The theme of the camp was traditional dances from Slovakia, Croatia, and Hungary, inviting teenagers who will attend exciting workshops, bond with new friends, and learn new dances from one another. But this camp was more than just about dancing. It offered a chance for teenagers to embrace an international environment and learn about different cultures.
