    Hello people,

    IF YOU ARE DANCERS you are more than welcome!

    The village is 40km from Sofia in mountainous area with only two citizens.

    It is not a community... It is an expriment... It is a place (three houses and a yard) in a small village close to Sofia, Bulgaria. We did already reconstructed and restaurated one clay house, some dancing space and a room for guests... so there are conditions for up to 10 people living together for some time.

    There is still a lot of work in organizing the space (the garden too).

    We are a family. Petya, Dido and little Kaya
    We are working on many different ideas...

    volunteers have to be able to take care for themselves (leaving the spaces clean and organized, cooking, shoping, washing...and so on!...

    Winter time we would like to offer acommodation to people but we cannot pay for food... winter time we dont stay there so you would stay on your own... also there is not so much to do but still there are things you can help (no more than 15 hours per week) ... winter time you need to go shoping for yourself in the next village.
