Dance festivals around the world
Some feminist talks, workshops, dancing and glitters !
It was on July 5th, the preview of Lætitia Carton's movie Le Grand Bal, in the small Luminor, cosy movie theater in the Marais, historical neighborhood of Paris.
Since my first excursion in Portugal in 2015 for Forrò de Lisboa and Andancas, I can’t help myself to go back every year to try a new festival. Portugal and especially Lisbon is beautiful, sunny and warm, and they know how to organise simple and joyful events full of friendly people. In
France. May. There is an amazing folk festival lost in the mountains. Let's talk about music, dance, food, drinks, fancy costumes and hiking in the woods !
Next october, a new edition of the fantastic bal folk festival Cadansa will take place in Duiven, The Netherlands. A quite big and magical event only Dutch could have invented. These past years, I have attended to several events in The Netherlands, from the regular bal to bal folk and
Bal folk festival Andancas (Portugal) is one of my best memory of a summer festival !
What I do with my weekends ? Of course : dance festivals. But where ? why ? when ? Long story...
