About the project owner

The mission of Les Étoiles Filantes Dance School is to promote folk, international and historical dances in the Laval region. In addition to planning the FestiLaval Dance for its 2nd edition, Les Étoiles Filantes are organizing 19th century balls accessible to all.

In partnership, La Troupe Fantasia inc. is an artistic troupe founded in Sainte-Rose, Laval, in January 1977 by Ghislaine Burque. It is made up of professionals and amateurs of all ages (9 and over). From a folk choir originally known as "Les Rossignols de Ste-Rose", it quickly became a troop asserting itself through musicals by adding dance and dramatic expression to the quality of its choral song.
