FAQ

Can I come without a dance partner?
Yes, please feel welcome to do so.
I have never danced (folk) before, what now?
Coming for the first time can be a bit outside of your comfort zone but be assured, no one will judge you on your dancing skills.
There will be an introduction class of 1 hour at 19:00, there we'll explain some common dances (hanter-dro, andro, scottisch, jig, bourré 2 times).
Folk dancing is relatively accessible to dance to and don't hesitate to ask some explanation more experienced dancers will be more than happy to show you some steps.
Also, you don't have to dance all night, enjoying the music and watching others dancing can also be delightful.
How can I get there?
The closest train station is the one of Rochefort-Jemelle which is 5km away from the venue, from there you ca try taking a TEC bus to ROCHEFORT Route de Dinant 80 or ROCHEFORT Carrefour Rte vers Dinant to go to the venue, alternatively ROCHEFORT Ancienne Gare or ROCHEFORT Poste to go to the sleeping place. If you come by car then please park by preference in Rue de Suzin at the cimetery.
