Dance Information

This strathspey, Montparnasse, was dedicated to friends of the deviser, Jerry and Danielle Reinstein (who had a home in Montparnasse). The Reinsteins founded the Paris RSCDS branch in 1984.

Montparnasse is an area of Paris, France, on the left bank of the river Seine, centred at the crossroads of the Boulevard du Montparnasse and the Rue de Rennes, between the Rue de Rennes and boulevard Raspail.
