The Celtic Cultural Alliance will be hosting a Fest-Noz with Bagad New York on November 8th. A Fest-Noz, or Night Festival , is a traditional social dance and music gathering, similar to a ceili, from the Brittany region of France. Brittany is a Celtic region of France, belonging to the seven Celtic Nations.
Traditionally, a Fest-Noz was held in the rural towns of Brittany and it was a place for people to meet, dance, sing, enjoy music and celebrate. Today, there are a thousand Fest-Noz celebrations held in Brittany each year, and they preserve this aspect of Breton culture. In 2012, Fest-Noz was included in the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Culture and Intangible Heritage list; currently, this is the only Celtic representation on the Intangible Heritage list.
This program will expose the participants to the dance and music of Brittany. A good time will be had by all exploring this unique aspect of Celtic Culture!
No previous dance experience required! We will all learn together!
