La Danse Bretonne


Already we're at the end of our second week. Time is flying by.  Tonight the stagiaires had the opportunity to learn about and participate in traditional Breton dancing.  For two hours, the stagiaires and their host families wore out their pinky fingers and their calves learning several different traditional dances from the region. We stepped, jumped, spun, hopped and twirled until we couldn't do it anymore.  As the city of St. Brieuc is located in the region of Brittany, this night of cultural exploration was particularly relevant to the stagiaires experiences with their host families, many of whom are Breton, and to what they have been learning in class, especially the culture class.  Here are a few photos of the night, but many more can be found at the link below.
