Paris off the beaten track, dancing at the Quai Saint-Bernard – Jardin Tino Rossi – Banks of Seine

We dance on the shores of Port Saint-Bernard. Every evening, from the beginning of June to the end of August, hundreds of dancers meet spontaneously in the arena of the Tino Rossi Garden, at the foot of the Institute of the Arab World.

Salsa, tango, traditional Breton dance, rock … there is something for everyone. That’s Paris off the beaten track !
