An antique dance, a courting ritual. A dandelion flower to blow desires.The double time bourrée dance is full of romantic and loving meanings. It is almost a theatrical transposition of the dynamics of seduction. The dandelion flower is the spring oracle. The legend says that lovers give their wishes to the flower and then blow them away to make them come true.
