Week-end classes and intensives

Dance & Health (D&S) and Dance It Your­self (DIY) week-end events 

A series of week-end classes open to all to exper­i­ment with our bodies.
Dance & Health classes focus on (self-)care and inter­rog­ate notions of the body and well-being.
Dance It Your­self classes focus on spe­cif­ic dance styles.
Wheth­er you are an expert or a begin­ner, our events are open to all so every­one can con­trib­ute accord­ing to their skills and abil­it­ies and exper­i­ment new things with CCN artists or out­side the CCN, in Cal­va­dos, Orne… In 2023, all week­end events will be 20€/week-end, and some events will be sched­uled on Sundays, with a shared lunch organ­ized in the middle of the day for more con­vi­vi­al­ity between par­ti­cipants and artists.

In 2023, we will con­tin­ue to explore cli­mate change with two “Dance and Eco­logy” week­ends, and we’ll revis­it Disco Dance, and offer a “let’s hold hands” event.
