BALFOLK et Contredanses - Discover the Charm of French Formation dances.

Looking to take your dancing skills to the next level? Look no further than our "Balfolk et Contredanses" class!
The Contredanse is an 18th-century French development of the English country dance and was a popular dance style among European aristocrats and bourgeoisie. In this class, we explore the close relationship between the Contredanse and traditional/regional French dances, which revolutionized the landscape of French dancing.
Our class focuses on Balfolk group dances, including forms in chains, longways, square, couple, and circles. With a potpourri of formations and patterns, this class is perfect for taking your social dancing skills to the next level.
