Abstract. We study the dynamics of quasilinear Hamiltonian wave equations with Dirichlet boundary conditions in an $n$--dimensional parallepided. We prove an averaging theorem according to which the solution corresponding to an arbitrary small amplitude smooth initial datum remains arbitrarily close to a finite dimensional torus up to very long times. We expect the result to be valid for a very general class of quasilinear Hamiltonian equations.
