Bourrée

The bourrée is a lively French dance that originated in the 17th century and was particularly popular in central France. The bourrée is characterized by its fast tempo and the distinctive two-quarter or four-quarter time rhythm, which makes dancing light and lively. Originally a folk dance, the bourrée was later integrated into courtly music and included in the works of composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel.

Today, the bourrée has a firm place in Bal Folk, a movement that revives traditional dances from all over Europe and celebrates them in lively, social dance events.
