The toquen a córrer, ses nou sardanes

Ses nou sardanes is a typical local dance, precedent of the sardana as it is known today, commemorating a local legend according to which Notre Dame de Bon Secours run down the street after the devil, who was taking away with him a little boy from Tossa called Xixanet.

This dance alternates nine short sardanas with the toquen a córrer, a sort of gallop danced up and down the Socors Street by groups of two women and one man, until the music stops and a new sardana starts. This is repeated up to nine times. The dance is completed with a walz. 

It is celebrated on the 2nd. of July.
