Balfolk dancing is popular social dancing from Western Europe, a recent revival of traditional, mostly French, folk dances.
Bourrées, jigues, gavotte, mazurkas, waltzes, scottishes: some partner dances, some group dances, some snakey chain dances.They are all fun and easy to learn, you don’t need any partners or prior experience. We’ll show you how!
We always dance to live music: fiddles, accordions, clarinets, guitars and more…
