On dance floors, to prepare the bals-concerts, you will be able to discover, understand or dance a wide variety of “European dances”. (There are between 50 and 300 participants per workshop-gathering).
The stars on the programme give an indication of the level of these workshops: (*: easy, **: intermediate, ***: advanced).
Everyone, with their approach, their history, their priorities… their dreams, can dance.
