2015 KLENK-IEP -- Cruising Estonian Style! - UPDATES

KLENK-IEP 2015 Updates

Attention KLENK-IEP 2015 cruise goers!  To make your vacation even more enjoyable, here are some exciting program additions:

The KLENK-IEP 2015 program will now start “on land” prior to the cruise.  The Eesti Meeskoor (Estonian Men’s Choir) will present a free concert on Thursday January 22, at 7 PM in St. Paul Lutheran Church, Boca Raton, Florida.   Choir conductor Jüri Rent directed the Estonian national anthem at the last Laulupidu. You may want to adjust your travel plans to take advantage of this special event.

About forty folk dancers led by Mart Agu, director of the Eesti Tantsupidu / Dance Festival two years ago, will perform during the cruise. As a special treat, they will give a folkdance workshop for KLENK participants!

Interested in yoga?  Stay fit and have fun with KLENK’s own on-ship yoga sessions with Enely Jaager, who owns YogaHouse in Tallinn!
