Fun, accessible French and European traditional dances. 

No experience or partner necessary.


Live music by Eloise & Co.

Becky Tracy (fiddle) & Rachel Bell (accordion)


With special guest Susan Kevra from Nashville, who will be teaching the dances and adding clarinet and French singing to the evening! In particular, she will teach some bourrée variations to expand our dance repertoire.


Dances range from beautiful to raucous. Even if you’ve never tried anything like this before, come on over! Feel free to listen and watch from the sidelines or jump in. We’ll teach you everything you need to know, and the crowd has a reputation for being welcoming, eager  to draw newcomers into the fun. Experienced dancers will be treated to expanded bourrée possibilities.


Share our video with friends to whet their appetite! 

Masks are welcome but not required. Please stay home if you feel ill or are testing positive for Covid-19. 

The Dec 17 dance is supported in part by the Gadd/Merrill Foundation of the Country Dance and Song Society.

Mark your calendars for 2024 bal folk: Jan 21, Feb 25, March 24
