Step up to dance! Althea Dance Company will be in Paris for a 6-day annual workshop at the Fondation des Etats-Unis during summer 2022. The company will offer contemporary technique classes taught by the members of the company and by a guest teacher, repertory classes, improvisation sessions and partnering classes. The workshop also includes choreography sessions everyday for the creation of a piece on the participants, which will be presented at a show opened to the public on July 19 at the FEU.
Althea dance’s work is a blend of contemporary flow and seamless movement, yet very physical, which mixes floor work with the lines and extensions of the dancers. Althea Dance Company is a young contemporary dance company based in New York. The Company focuses on international collaboration with artists from different fields such as writers, musicians, painters or visuals artists. Althea Dance also likes to perform in surprising and unusual spaces such as warehouses, artist studios, art galleries or outdoor stages. The company explores new ways of sharing dance with the audience and reaching out to people who may not be used to the contemporary dance scene.
So far, Althea Dance Company has performed mainly in the US, France and Mexico and is aiming to keep expending its international voice.
Closing performance: the general public is welcome to join us for an Althea Dance Show in the Grand Salon on Tuesday, July 19 at 7:30pm.
Tarifs : 250 € | 80 € for FEU residents ; 175 € for professional dancers or in training.
