Dancing Salsa on the beach? Yup... dance for everyone! You must be wondering how come there's a beach in Chartres?

It is actually the water fountain at Place des Epars that turn out to be "a beach" during the summer.

Many people, mostly teens and kids, love to fresh up their bodies after the heat of the day, they even wearing swimsuit! ...just like on the real beach.

But tonight... everyone will dance Salsa!!
