Programmes promoting artistic action


Education in the arts and culture is an essential component of the CDC's action. It has initiated various occasions to reach out to audiences throughout the year and during the peak festival periods. To stimulate public awareness in the art of dance, the CDC offers a series of learning sessions combining various phases in a freely defined sequence. Practical workshops, discussions with artists, sessions based on teaching kits, after-show events or time for reflection and critical feedback are tools used to develop projects targeting all types of audience, outside school hours. This type of work is conducted in partnership with local municipalities, non-profit organisations, social centres, etc.

Example of a Learning Session
step 1 > A mediator presents the video La Danse en 10 dates in a classroom session.
step 2 > Participants meet artists in residence, visit the CDC centre and take a look behind the scene.
step 3 > A dance workshop is held at the CDC centre with artists in residence.
step 4 > Participants experience a performance programmed by the CDC as part of Les Hivernales or the children's festival HiverÔmomes.
