Workshop folk dance for beginners – level 2  – Sophie Lepoutre



In this workshop for beginners and "semi-beginners", we discover the most common folk dances of level 2 .

  • The basic steps of the waltz, andro and rondeau in pairs
  • A quick review of the basic principles of leading and following
  • A few simple variations for the scottish, mazurka and/or jig
  • If there's time: Quickly brush up on the other dances from the Level 1 course (cercle circassien, gavotte de l'Aven, polka and hanterdro).


We pay a lot of attention to a good dancing posture and, if necessary, to unlearning "bad dancing habits". This makes this workshop not only suitable for beginners, but also for people who have been going to balls and festivals for a while, but never learned waltz, andro and rondeau en couple in detail.

Continue learning after the workshop?
After this workshop you can join one of the groups of the current trimester. The dance teacher will tell you more about it.

In the evening, you can immediately apply what you have learned during the Queimada, the folk ball organised by our partner Muziekpublique. Info & tickets op hun website

Our workshops in Brussels are usually given in French, with translations into Dutch or English if necessary. Sophie speaks multiple languages, so you will get individual feedback in the language of your choice.


You need to have followed a level 1 workshop or term of classes 

This course is also of interest to dancers who have been attending balls or festivals for some time without ever having studied the waltz, andro or rondeau in detail as a couple.
