Bal Folk with Box & String and Maria Cramer & Robin Bannerji

Box and String
Dance Hall Saturday, 1:15 pm to 2:30 pm

Bal folk is traditional French dancing, as popularized all over Western Europe and the world. At a bal, you will experience the excitement and calm of folklife itself. From the blissful synchrony of a whole room stepping together in a spellbinding Breton chain dance, to the surging passion of a partner-swapping gigue, to the friendly — or flirtatious — intimacy of a partnered bourrée.

The steps are simple, straightforward, and honest; they are suitable for dancers of all ages, experience levels, and abilities. The music is infectious and begs to be danced to. The band guides the evening’s program, and the dancers can interpret the tunes however they wish. The atmosphere is relaxed and designed for community enjoyment.
