Get ready for an evening of Latin dance, with dancer Jonathan Heredia De la Cruz, whisking you off on a journey from one festive Latin world to the next: salsa, merengue, bachata, cha-cha, cumbia, reggaeton, and much more—with an introductory dance lesson to kick off the proceedings. The musicians of the Chico Band will bring the dancefloor to life with a blend of traditional and contemporary sounds, before the DJ YRO keeps the rhythms flowing until the end of the evening at 10 pm!
New this year: drinks and snacks will be available at the Festival’s bars, as soon as the site opens at 6 pm. The animation and the initiation class start at 7 pm.
The L’Art en soi Festival features six festive “Soirées dansantes”—dance evenings—with introductory lessons on various styles of dance, live music, and DJs: samba, disco and waacking, Guinean dance, Bollywood, Latin dance, and country. Five “Midis dansés”—lunchtime dances—are also on the program to get you moving at midday! It’s a date, on the Esplanade at Place des Arts, from September 15 to 24!
