Celtic Breton Music & Dances

Learn to dance Celtic Breton line and circle dances.

Brittany is full of Druidic lore, woodland and lake magic, megalithic monuments and rich folk traditions.

Community dances are still regular events, where old and young all turn up to move together to the sound of the pipes and song. In old times of earthen floors, when a new family’s house was completed, folks would gather together and make special dances inside to firm the floor and fill the abode with music, song and celebration. The dances are wide and varied, grounded in lyric and rhythm of a particular Celtic flavour. The dances of Brittany and France can be entrancing, communal, romantic and infectious!
