Danse folklorique Normand

I have always loved the traditional dress of the various parts of France and their dances. I am saddened by the images as it seems that the young are not carrying on the traditions passed down. Will there come a time when one will no longer see these costumes and the dances will be forgotten. I pray that is not so.

If one looks closely at the coifs worn by these Normand women we see a reflection of Charlotte Cordays coif in scetches of her. A study in the past...


Other dances may be see on this playlist.
