WORKSHOPS and class - June 24 to August 10 - France info





A caring and passionate atmosphere that fosters motivation, progress and self-confidence!

The discovery of the mastery of movement in space, inspired by emotions and many situations, allows children to develop harmoniously.

Adapted exercises allow the children to hold their backs well, to adopt a beautiful head carriage, to soften the feet, the hips and the back, so as to prepare them to approach effectively the technique classical ballet from the age of 8 years (law of July 19, 1989).

These class also teach children self-control, respect, discipline, and a sense of effort, all of which contribute greatly to their personal development.

From the age of 8, students are perfectly prepared to join class for classical ballet or contemporary dance.

From the age of 9, the most motivated students who wish to become more involved in dance can join the class en horaires aménagés danse (CHAD) program, which is run by the Paris Marais Dance School's professional training program, in partnership with the Rognoni elementary school (Paris 5e), and then the collèges and lycées offering special timetables.
