Jean-Besré Performing Arts Centre
This integrated dance workshop aims to bring together participants, with and without a handicap, in a friendly atmosphere, in order to create opportunities to meet and exchange on dance.
Through different exercices using games and collaboration, the youth and their parents are called on to move through the space at different levels, to experiment with different speeds of movement, and to invent different ways of moving with each other.
This family activity allows each participant to plunge into the universe of dance according to his or her own abilities, by playing with his or her creativity, and the body’s imagination.
