After an impressive week at Blackpool, the Ballroom Dance Company changed pace and started traveling through France, Belgium, and Switzerland for performances and sightseeing. Their first locale was Paris, where they toured the Eiffel Tower. Later in the week they visited the Palace of Versailles, the former home of King Louis XIV, whose patronage and love of dance would eventually serve as a cornerstone for modern dance in the west.
During the week, the Ballroom Dance Company performed in Paris, Brussels, Le Chesnay (near Versailles), and Geneva. At the Cirque d’hiver Bouglione in Paris, the dancers had the challenge of fitting their traditional show on a round stage. Despite the difficulties, they enjoyed the chance to perform in such a unique venue. The next few days provided opportunities to perform to sold-out audiences in Brussels and Le Chesnay. A number of students also met with European Union ambassadors from around the world during a VIP reception before the performance in Brussels. The group finished off the week with a performance in Geneva, Switzerland, for their largest audience to date.
Along with these performances, the Ballroom Dance Company held dance activities and a devotional with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Paris, Versailles, and Torcy. On Sunday, the company enjoyed an evening devotional with local Latter-day Saints in Geneva.
