Soirée dansante – Valse

Esplanade de la Place des Arts September 24, 2020

Due to developments over the past few days and new recommendations from the public health department, we have been forced to cancel the waltz dance evening and all other Hors les murs events scheduled for this week. We thank all the artists who led or would have led the various activities.

Participants who had reserved spots for upcoming activities will be contacted by email and will be able to have their deposit refunded.

Mathieu Casavant and Mélanie Martin will be on hand for this evening of dance featuring an introductory waltz workshop, followed with a few spins on the dance floor, where you’ll be moving to the music of the Orchestre métropolitain.

The evening’s two hosts invite you to a ball where, for a moment or two, you can show off your skills on the dance floor! Follow along and come waltz to the melodious sounds of the OM and its brass quintet.

Two performances will take place during the evening; the first at 7:00 p.m. and the second at 8:45 p.m.
