    Dance

    Founded in 1995, Rainbow Evidanse is a Dance club .

    Rainbow Evidanse is a LGBTH (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Hetero) club that organises couples dancing activities for mixed and same-sex couples. The club was founded in 1995 under the name Les Gais Musette.

    The Rainbow Evidanse state of mind is for people who want to have fun learning to dance. Dancing breaks down the barriers between Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans and straight partners. It’s about talking, smiling, having fun: girls dancing with girls, boys dancing with boys, boys and girls dancing together with the girls taking the lead – or following.

    Rainbow Evidanse’s 200 members include just as many men as women!
