This Aug.2002 photo shows people dancing during a Fest-Noz in Lorient, Brittany. Fest-Noz is a festive gathering based on the collective practice of traditional Breton dances, accompanied by singing or instrumental music. The Breton cultural movement has preserved this expression of a living and constantly renewed practice of inherited dance repertoires with several hundred variations, and thousands of tunes. The UNESCO inscribed Fest-Noz on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. (AP Photo/David Vincent)
