L'Echo de nos Montagnes...
The folk-dancing group from Annecy, created about seventy years ago, is an active association promoting the region of Savoy through the music, dances, songs, costumes and traditions from the 19th century. Among the activities maintained alive, explained and taught to the public, are crafts from that era such as wood-carving, bobbin lace, quill writing, old-time games, traditional recipes…
The group welcomes all ages and participates in exchanges and festivals in Europe and the United States. Civilization classes, including History and traditions, are offered to children.
