'Quadrilha' is a traditional Brasilian Festival. It was introduced to Brasil by the Portuguese for whom St. John’s Day on the 24th of June is one of the oldest and most popular celebrations of the year. The festivities traditionally begin after the 12th of June, on the eve of St. Anthony’s day and last until the 29th of June which is St. Peter's Day. There are bonfires, folk dancing, fire works and feasts.

The dance called after and associated with 'Quadrilha' will be performed at the Gort festival in June. It will be danced by a number of couples led by a 'bride' and a 'groom'.
