Dance at Bougival (French: Danse à Bougival[1]) is an 1883 work by Pierre-Auguste Renoir currently in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America.[2] It has been described as "one of the museum's most beloved works".[3]


The work depicts two of Renoir's friends, Suzanne Valadon and Paul Auguste Llhote.[3]


The painting has been described as one of Renoir's first reversions to a more classical style of painting he learned copying paintings in the Louvre while maintaining the bright palette of his fellow Impressionists.[4]
