What is Balfolk?


Friday, October 14 2016: Bal Masqué, with La Forcelle from France, at the Polish Combatants’ Hall. 

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…

Every Monday @ Baka Café, Beresford and Bloor (steps from Runnymede Station)
7:30pm-9:00pm: dancing with live music  

This is a pay-what-you-can event (suggested $5-10) which helps us raise money for our big events and pay musicians!
