Events > Dance

If art is the expression of the beautiful, the dance is the versatile ephemeral, silent, poetic, free and divine version. Body language of thought, one of the most perfect forms of communication, it expresses all the feelings, all states, emotions, and simply life.

Cannes likes dancing, Cannes sees the dance. Since the beginning of the 1960s, the city grants a privileged place in this major art. With the Higher School of Dance of Rosella Hightower, one of the largest training centers in the world in classical, contemporary and jazz. And with the Dance Festival, one of the flagship events of the cultural season in Cannes, whose creation in 1985 fits beautifully in the historical relationship of the city with the world of dance.

The International Dance Festival, a biennial event, is firmly focused on the contemporary dance. It offers to the major international companies and to the new talents of the choreographic scene an exceptional space of visibility. Other choreographic performances held during the summer include folk, classical or modern. These performances are organized by the Palais des Festivals and can be reserved online.

Whether you're passionate or wishing to discover this art in the service of the expressiveness, enjoy your stay in Cannes and attend a dance performance. The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès offers preferential rates if you want to attend an evening event with your colleagues, clients or friends. Our event department can offer you on simple request a personalized presentation of our cultural season for your company.
