Dance with me Extract 2 Mambo

Dance with me!

The project Dances with me is an original form in Concert/Ball/Show.
The choreographer James Carlès and his Company join a group of musicians and invite dancers/choreographers of reputation in various styles of popular dances to transmit rudiments of popular dances to the public. These small dances develop and become with the wire of the evening a great collective dance where one shares in the joy and simplicity the pleasure of being together without any distinction of age, sex, of social class, of ethnic origin…. In short, without any form of discrimination that it is.

Had a presentiment of dancers (subject to confirmation): Françoise Puyatier, James Carlès, Madeline Rous Rodriguez, Stéphane Mbella, Elisa Giner, Olivier Béarn, Juliana Casas, Georgey Souchette, Angeline Gardienet, Céline Garcia and Pierre Cabrera ......
