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.
The dancers from Swing ConneXion will present a highly energetic evening of dance—for solo participants, couples, or your whole family bubble! Developing out of a blend of traditional African and European rhythms, swing emerged with the appearance of the big bands. Lighting up the dancefloor with their vintage and festive sounds will be the group Les Royal Pickles.
