We always meet in a good mood to share our traditions :dance steps, explanations on forgotten costumes and acccesories.
- Our dance steps are mostly based on polka and waltz, danced in couples or in farandole. They are all typical of our region or of neighbouring villages.
Very often, these dances have been exported to other regions of France by our peddlers at the time when the country of Savoie was an independent country (connected to France in 1860).

- Our songs, as for them, are of moutain tradition. They tell the story of the life of the moutain people of a village, of an event. These songs were sungs during vigils, celebrations (weddings...), some of them are known throughout France,  having been learned in primary schools.

- Our show can be adapted to the event : on a podium, street parade... on the occasion of votive festivals, folk gatherings, weddings, congresses...
A simply and sypathetic staging combining songs and dances in a friendly atmosphere. Very often, our performance ends with spectators with whom we share a few dance steps.

- Apart from our professional activity, it with pleasure that we meet once a week and throughout the year to shere a passion which a dear to us "folklore".
Our assocation is above all an association brimming with conviviality. We love to dance and sing just like our elders who willingly give us their advice or personal archives. It is this energy that we want to share. Our goal is to pass on the tradition inherited from past generations and to entrust it to those of the future. We continue to keep alive the Savoyard heritage, the basis of a culture that contributes to the formation of the personality of our people. We hope to share with you our folklore and our 'joie de vivre'.

All year round.
