Fest Noz in Morbihan

Did you know? Amongst the famous legends of Breton folklore there is one which tells the story of how Breton dancing was invented! Our ancestors tell of how, at one time, the floors of the houses where made from "earth", which had to be stamped on to ensure it was properly "beaten" and, in particular, to make it less dusty so that the houses could be comfortably lived in. Because this was a boring and laborious task, some jolly Britons hit on the idea of having some fun while accomplishing it! The first steps of Breton dancing were born, and, as with most of the work carried out in our countryside, it was done in a spirit of teamwork and conviviality!

These days, the "Fest noz" (a Breton word meaning "night festival" and referring to a kind of traditional Breton ball) take place all year round in Morbihan's towns and villages.
