French Country Dancing

French Dance Instruments

An opportunity to take part in traditional French Country dancing accompanied by La Vieille Rue and led by experts.  Beginners Welcome

La Vieille Rue is a Wiltshire based band of musicians  who play the traditional evocative dance music of the Bourbonnais region of Central France, using instruments such as the Vielle a Roue (hurdy gurdy), grande cornemuse (French bagpipes), diatonic and chromatic accordions, concertina, violin and guitar.

The traditional dances of Central France, the Bourrée, Schottish, Valse, Mazurka and Polka will be taught in this session.  We will teach you the steps and walk you through the dances.  Beginners and more experienced dancers are welcome.  Our aim is pleasure and enjoyment in music and dance for both adults and children.
