Its important to mention that Paloina for sure is the best Dutch group I have seen till now and its really a big surprise when you see them one stage, you never would expect such a quality! Higly reccomended to all festivals, for sure they will surprise your audience too!!
Alberto Rego, Jurymember Buyukcekmece festival, Turkey
It was a pleasure meeting your group, this time at a great festival like Buyukcekmece. Congratulations for the prize you have received (best costume. red.). The elegance and appropriateness of your costumes well deserved the distinction. The joy and warmth that you all transmitted were also important factors that contributed for the success of your presentation.
Folkmoot Festival USA
“PALOINA was an excellent group and met or exceeded all expectations. Their repertoire was varied and appealing and was very well executed. Their Directors were very easy to work with, and the members were most cooperative with their guides and with the staff of the Festival.”
International Folklor meeting Lublin, Poland
“The group was enthusiastically received by our audiences. We can recommend PALOINA to other festivals without hesitation.”
I met Paloina on the folk festival in Lublin in July 2010. You are my favourite group. I love your dance and music. I remember every your performance.
Daniël Stork, Cultural Attaché in Turkye, Consulat Generaal Istanbul
“Paloina explores and pushes the boundaries of folk dances, bridges to other places (dance) culture and plays an important role in maintaining the knowledge and techniques of Dutch folklore. Paloina’s dancing here is a Dutch form of oral history. Embassies around the world can make a good impression represented by Paloina.”
Geert Nijhof, SIVO festival Odoorn, The Netherlands
You put the Dutch folklore in International context extremely well to the stage, with new impetus and a sense of traditional values, and that deserves admiration.
