This July to August, Alliance Française is thrilled to offer new dance classes, taught by former danseuse étoile Emmanuelle Grizot, and given directly on the stage of the theatre!
Few dances are as quintessentially French as ballet. The discipline emerged in the 15th century in Italy, and further developed in the French court, especially from the time of Louis XIV, a passionate dancer. Did you know that many of the terms and steps still in use today were created by the Sun King himself, arabesque, demi-detourné, glissade…? Until now French is considered the official language for ballet movements.
Come further your understanding of French culture with Alliance Française’ dance classes, offered for the first-time ever!
For beginners, no necessary prerequisite.
In English, with a little French touch
Date: 8 July to 19 August 2021 (7 classes)
