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.
Contagiously energetic dancer DJungle will guide participants through a few simple combinations of house-style dancing… while the musicians of the group Fantasy 303 make sure to create an electrifying atmosphere for participants, featuring classic sounds that stretch from the early days of house in Chicago and the more experimental ambiance of acid house, to “world music,” funk, and tribal house.
