This year the small village of Ciran in Southern Touraine puts on an amazing show around the theme of 'dance' for the second year in a row. You will be transported to many corners of the globe...in spectacular fashion. Centred around the little lake in the village the show will surprise you from beginning to end. As the title suggests, you will be introduced to the dances, whether Cuban or Japanese, Russian or Greek. A festive show that will delight the family audience we welcome every year.
