Dance with me

THE PROJECT

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 - jazz and associated disciplines and invite dancers/choreographers of reputation in various styles of popular dances, in order to transmit rudiments of popular dance 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 origin...
