Danseurs de l’Ile Jésus - dip and dive
Performance by a group of dancers at an outdoor event organized by Phillippe Bruneau at the Musée canadien des civilisations (Gatineau) in 1989. The first half of the dance is built around a series of basket swings. Starting at 2:50, we move into a succession of dip and dive figures, with the lead couple dancing the figure with the two couples to their right, then the two couples to their left and then with the two couples to either side. The dancers are from the group that still (2016) sponsors Friday night dances in Laval just across the river from Montreal.
