For the Bouree frees me from gravity and gets my feet to laugh.

For I don’t know a funnier game than the Circassian Circle.

For in the Chapelloise I can look at each one of you, and give you a smile.

Smile at you even when you’re as focussed and shy as I am, when our gazes are meeting in the middle of the whirlwind.

translated from Laetitia Carton, Le Grand Bal
