Discovering and learning folk dances from across the world in a beautiful outdoor setting is a fun and original way to meet people and learn more about different cultures. What if summer was an opportunity to discover traditional cultural activities?

On Mondays and Thursdays starting on June 2, the Association montréalaise des arts et des traditions populaires (AMATP) organises evenings of traditional folk dances at Beaver Lake in Mount Royal Park.

On Mondays, a qualified teacher teaches some twenty different dances, at a pace that accommodates all participants’ learning abilities.

Thursday, more experienced dancers can dance to a variety of music and rhythms. No less than sixty dances will be presented, mainly from the Balkans and the Middle East.

These evenings are free and open to both beginners and more advanced dancers. Seven years and older are welcome.
