Czech Dancers San Diego
Karicka Dance Group Will Perform

We are looking forward to hosting and enjoying Moravian dances by the Karicka Dance Group from San Diego.
About the group…

Be a part of the Day of Czech Culture!

There are three opportunities to get involved:

1.  Czech Salon Dance BESEDA  -  Looking for dancers!

This very special dance that links folk dance forms with the elegant dance style will come to life again at our “Day of Czech Culture” on October 8th in Orinda.

Česká beseda was introduced at a particularly important time in Czech cultural history, a period characterized by a great upsurge of activity in art, politics and cultural events of all kinds. The initiators were poet Jan Neruda, musicians Ferdinand Heller and Bedřich Smetana, dancing master Karel Link, and other Czech artists of the new national cultural life.

Česká beseda is performed by four couples in a square formation and consists of four parts, each has several sections (various steps variations).

All potential dancers are WELCOME!

All interested dancers send an email to

2.  Design a T-shirt for the occasion

As you may have read, we're planning a festival-style Day of Czech Culture this fall and we're looking for a gifted graphic designer to create a logo for this very special event! We're hoping to use it on all of our marketing - from flyers to t-shirts.

Here's what we're envisioning that our logo (or graphic image) should include:

  • Sokol SF logo
  • American flag
  • Czech flag
  • Slovak flag
  • Something that evokes images of a Czech festival - dancing, delicious food, beautiful imagery of the old country!

The winner will be recognized on the Day of Czech Culture and will receive a free lunch voucher!

We invite you to let your creativity flow!

Contact us with any questions and entries at

Entries due by June 20th.
