CINEMA BALLS: an overture to the Lumière Festival!
Reinvented, adapted and simplified, mythical ballroom scenes were danced by the public during the “Cinema balls,” organised by the Biennale de la Danse. There were simple, funny, sometimes wacky dances- suitable for all audiences and all ages.
No need to be an expert to have fun dancing the Madison after seeing the amazing scene in Potiche by François Ozon starring Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve. The public came to share with family and friends a unique dance in unison!
Hundreds of amateur dancers got moving to participate in the Biennale Cinema balls as ambassadors. These ambassadors simply attended a 3-hour rehearsal session with Dominique Hervieu to learn the dances ahead of the balls.
Cinema ball day, the "ambassadors," along with professional dancers, led and taught the dances to family, friends, and the general public.
The Cinema Balls were held at the Transbordeur
Saturday, September 29 at 3pm and 9pm
