up the tarnished image of the "Musette" in the world of dance is
no small task.
Talking about these dances of popular origin immediately
conjures up images which may certainly be
amusing, but which are often negative...
"tea dance" is easily confused with the "musette
One mixes "ballroom dances" and "social dances"
with "musette dances" in order to reduce everything to
just "partner dancing"...
musette dancing is indeed a style, the fact remains that dances
related to this style do exist.
there exist different regional musettes in at least two corners
of France : the Paris region and the Marseille region.
Java, known throughout France, is still taught in some dance schools.
many dancers are left who can dance the Toupie?
And where are the ones who know the Marseille Racatti?
other "musettes" in existence, specific to certain regions,
notable for the different way in which they are danced ?
nothing happens with the definitions or in people's attitudes, these
dances will finally disappear because of the lack of dancers.
