Our new show is a performance integrated in Bal Moderne, with the theme of 70’s Disco. Disco is not just entertainment, it is the sound of liberation, of race and gender equality and of LGBTQ rights. Creating a sense of community and communal enjoyment is what we look for. In the show we will integrate virtuosic solos and group sequences into an evening of audience engagement and 3 simple choreographies that will be taught to the spectators. It is an evening of pure joy of people dancing together, alternating between participating in dance and watching dance.
