These dances are very accessible, and all dance steps will be taught. No experience necessary—come on over even if you’ve never danced before! No partner necessary.
Dances will range from the fun, raucous energy of the bourrée to the spacious beauty of the mazurka. There will be exhilarating circle dances and captivating partner dances from Central France, as well as groovy dances in lines and circles and spirals from Brittany and Gascony. The variety is really fun! It’ll be a party! Bring your friends!
