The Folk dance collective “Banga” was established on the 18th March, 2009 (as an association (non-profit organization) on the 25th March, 2011).

Our home town is Liepaja – the town of music, the town where the wind is born, the town by sea. This is the reason why the title of collective arose naturally, it characterises the environment in which we work, live and enjoy.

The founder and head of the collective Kristine Finka puts all her never-ending energy, enthusiasm and love into the development of the collective.

Our essential value is the aim to develop strong, ambitious, united and continuously developing folk dance collective in Liepaja. During those five years we have already done great things. And it is just a beginning…

In our five existence years we are already achieved big goals. We had took part in international projects (project UBUS in Lithuania, youth project in Turkey and Moldova), we had made friendship trip to Sweden. Our biggest achievement till now is participation in Baltic States Students Songs and Dances Festival “Gaudeamus” in Vilnius, 2011, with this we gained chance to participate in Latvian Songs and Dances festival 2013, what is big pleasure for every dancer.

As our members say about themselves: “We are young, ambitious and directed to continuous development”.

We also are interested to meet new people and to get to know new cultures. To make exchange between cultures for getting to understand and learn each other better. We are different, but all in one!
