Final dance of the season

Sublime! 

Dancing to the interweaving melodies provided by the voices and instruments of Blanche Rowen and Mike Gulston was a treat not to be missed - with Stilouen, Jonathan Shorland and Poisson Rouge ensuring a great dance experience throughout the day and evening ......The summer bal did indeed sizzle.

But our last dance of the season is this Friday with a workshop led by Christine this time at 7:00 pm, as Carrie is reluctanty having to sit this one out with a gammy foot.
...just in case any of you could possibly doubt our commitent to the wonderful music and dance of Brittany and France, here is what Christine has to say...


Every year in France, on the 21st June they celebrate ‘La Fête de la Musique’ all over hundreds of villages and towns. This year, it falls on this Friday, which is our D’Accord evening, the last one before our summer break, so make the most of it !
Come and enjoy our last workshop at 7.00 pm :

- Kejaj : dance from Vannetais area, a mix of Andro & Hanterdro, though on a different rhythm from Trikott. http://lannig.e-monsite.com/pages/bro-gwened/pays-de-baud/kejaj.html

- Bourrées : - a 3-person Bourrée : a variation shown at StroudDance ( be patient, the dance starts 3.15minutes on the video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbjD895f_xA

- a 4-person Bourrée (probably Bourrée de la Chatre or Bourrée Chainée de Rivarennes), to give variety to our Bourrées dancing.
