The Grand Concours des Régions is back on France 3 this Friday, March 18, 2022 with an edition that highlights the folk dances of our villages in France.

On this occasion, 10 amateur groups from the regions of France and overseas will compete to win the trophy for “the best folk dance in France”. In total, 200 dancers will shine on the stage of the Royal Palace, in their traditional costume. Gavotte, dancing on stilts, polka, bourrée… The competition will be fierce!

The 10 amateur dance troupes in competition come from the regions of Brittany, Occitanie, Grand-Est, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Normandy, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the Tahiti islands and Martinique.

The Grand Concours des Régions jury is made up of former Miss France Mareva Galanter, singer Vincent Niclo, journalist Laurent Luyat, and antiques dealer Caroline Margeridon. The jurors will select 7 finalists. On the second pass, they will deliberate a second time to designate the big winner of the Grand Concours des Régions on Friday March 25 at 00:25.
