On Bouge, is a french folk dance club. Think of it like a friendly ceilidh with a french twist.
Beginners and visitors are always very welcome. We’ll show you the easy steps so you can join in right away. No partner necessary, but feel free to bring one if you want. You can also come just to listen to the great live music.
We dance several types of dances from different regions of france.
The Bourrée comes from central france and is danced facing a partner in lines or set formations.
The Schottische, Mazurka, Polka, Waltz are popular couple dances danced all over france.
The Breton dances such as Gavotte, Hanter Dro are danced in long snaking lines which intermingle and diverge.
Musicians – develop your repertoire and technique for dance-related music in an informal setting.
