Covid safety:

  • Please wear an N95 or similar quality mask while inside the building.
  • Proof of vaccination required.

Curious about what this kind of dancing is like? Come on over, even if you’ve never done anything like it before! You can hang out around the edges and listen to the music, or get swept up in the action! The dances are really accessible, and we’ll teach everything you need to know. There will be basic versions of the dances that are really easy to pick up for beginners, and over time we’ll also offer variations and additional types of dancers to keep things interesting for the experienced dancers!

One of the things we love most about these dances is the big variety of styles. There are raucous, energetic party dances like la chapelloise and bourrée. There are groovy Breton dances in lines and spirals that you can really sink into, and then there’s the meditative gavotte de l’aven. There are beautiful couple dances. Lately we’ve been into a couple types of rondeaus. And we’re learning more all the time! So excited to share it with you! Bring friends!

Additional upcoming dates:
