About Us

Hai la joc

Ever since its foundation in 1979, the International Dancegroup Hai la joc has been vital to the image of international dance in and around Groningen, the Netherlands. Hai la joc was founded by a few enthusiastic dancers of Teu, the recreational international dance society of Groningen. The name ‘Hai la joc’ (Romanian for ‘Come, and dance with us’) was taken from an LP with Romanian dances. Because of the different people who have been members of Hai la joc, Hai la joc has always had a varied repertoire. While the emphasis used to be on row dances from Balkan countries, our current repertoire encompasses varied dances from both European countries and other countries outside Europe.
