BalFolk dancing is popular social dancing from Western Europe, a recent revival of traditional, mostly French, folk dances. Thousands of people of all ages attend festivals such as Boombal (BE), Damada (FR), Andanças (PT), Gran Bal Trad (IT) and the Gennetines Grand bal de l'Europe (FR). There are vibrant folk dance scenes in towns and cities across Northern Europe, France, Belgium and Italy, and growing dance scenes in England and North America.
