The Europeade is the largest Festival of European folk culture and is held in a different European country each year (though yet to be hosted in the UK). First held in 1964 in Antwerp, it was the idea of Mon de Copper and Robert Muller-Knox who wanted to promote peace and friendship between young Europeans using music, song and dance. The Festival has grown over the years with over 200 groups from around 30 European countries now actively participating. ‘Steps in Time’ was the only English group to attend the 2010 festival.
The group travelled to Bolzano in Italy to attend the 47th Europeade (Youth of Europe) festival. In their Regency costumes, they gave a display of dance seldom seen in Europe.
ICM was very pleased to be in a position to sponsor ‘Steps in Time’ and we look forward to supporting their future displays.
