Our third performance at European Celtic Music Festival under the conveyor bridge F60 on 15 June 2013 (after 2011 and 2012) was to be an even more exciting highlight for us than the festival would have been anyway.
After months of rehearsals with our dance instructor Gyula Glaser, we were to show a dance programme together with Irish Beats Dance Company from Berlin. For Constantin it should become a double act since he is a member of both companies.
Beoga from Ireland and Manran from Scotland provided the wonderful music for this festival night. And Henk Hulzinga, the Frisian from Finsterwalde, took care of gluing everything nicely together.
The illuminated conveyor bridge rose into the summer night sky, guarding a perfect event which no admirer of Celtic music and Irish spirit should have missed.
Eventually the jolly audience couldn't be kept on their benches anymore. They took the forestage to dance frolicsomely and there was more than one spontaneous Irish and other dance piece performed by true aficionados.
We would like to thank the Irish Beats Dance Company for this joint show, especially Gyula for his efforts and patience and humour during our rehearsals.
Also many thanks to André Speri and his F60 team for the usual great organisation and assistance beforehand as well as on site.
