Traditional Dance Music from Central France & Brittany with MA- based band “Danse Cafe”. Join us for a fun informal evening learning about the traditional music of Western France. No experience needed – all dances will be taught, or simply come enjoy the music.

DANSE CAFE – Danse Café plays traditional dance music from France and Brittany, including lively tunes for Breton line dances such as the an dro, hanter dro, gavotte, and rond, energetic bourrées and scottishes from the Auvergne, slinky mazurkas from the Occitanie, and French circle dances and waltzes, both 3 and 5 beat.
