Società di Danza Novara-Arona

Nineteeth Century Dances Courses

“To rediscover the charm and pleasure of traditional European society dances.”



The first 19th century dance course

in the province of Novara took place in 2012

on the initiative of the teacher

Silvia Brazzoduro.




The city of Arona hosted us for two years,

until, in 2014, the group found its permanent

headquarters in nearby Dormelletto,

joining the National Federations

of the Società di Danza.



Over the years,

numerous members of different ages

have joined, (today we are about twenty)

to support what is the “historical” nucleus

in this wonderful adventure.




Since 2019 Silvia has entrusted the Group

to Cinzia Galbiati and Roberto Mocchiutti.



The purpose of the Association is promoting,

through the organization of events

in the province of Novara ,

the growth of the of nineteenth-century

traditional society dance

by sharing with the Members this beautiful experience

that enhances, amusement, socialization 

and growth cultural.



Joining is easy.
