Klezmer dances are fun and simple, social, East European Jewish dances.

BalFolk dancing is popular social dancing from Western Europe, a recent revival of traditional, mostly French, folk dances. Thousands of people of all ages attend festivals such as Boombal (BE), Damada (FR), Andanšas (PT), Gran Bal Trad (IT) and the Grand bal de l'Europe (FR). There are vibrant folk dance scenes in towns and cities across Northern Europe, France and Italy, and a growing dance scene in London.

If you're not smiling, you're not dancing!
