Sur Le Pont d’Avignon

Sur le pont d'Avignon

Children’s song, France

Pont d’Avignon is a famous medieval bridge in the French town of Avignon.

This old song, known from the 15th century, talks about a dance on it. In fact, the dance took place under the bridge and not on the bridge (“Sous le Pont d’Avignon”, not “Sur”).

Teaching idea

As the song talks about a dance you can repeat the verse many times and make a simple choreography on it.

You can use movements like dancing in pairs, dancing around each other, greeting (boys first and girls next time), or make a row, change on a round and finish with a strong step all together at the last word of the song.
