Brattleboro Bal Folk
Fun, accessible French and European traditional dances.
No experience or partner necessary.
Live music by Eloise & Co.

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 and meditative to raucous and energetic. Even if you’ve never tried anything like this before, come on over! Feel free to sit along the edges and listen and check it out, or join right in on the fun! We’ll teach you everything you need to know, and the crowd has a reputation for being happy and welcoming, eager to draw newcomers into the fun. For the folks who have been showing up regularly to this monthly series, the expanded bourrée possibilities will be a real treat!
