The Festival L'Art en soi, presented by Place des Arts, offers six evenings of dancing to introduce you to different dance styles, as well as two family days on its outdoor Esplanade! Dance evenings start with an optional 1-hour workshop during which you will learn the basic steps of the featured dance; the Esplanade will then be transformed into a huge dancefloor, with a musical performance. It’s free! Reservation required.
This cheerful and dynamic dance style—with its rhythmic music and movements going from toes to fingertips—promises to put a smile on your face, even if you’ve never danced before! Choreographer Roger Sinha and two dancers will teach you the moves, to the sound of the tablas (Indian percussion) played by musicians Ravi Dwivedi-Leng and Kingsley Gordon, adding some spice to this lively evening of dance!
