There’s more to Cannes than cinema! The dance also holds a special place at le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès with this event entirely dedicated to a living art form born at the same time as Humanity.
Whether initially ritual or religious, baroque, then refined like a romantic ballet, or in the form of tango and waltz before the expressive relevance of hip-hop, dances have a dense history….
This is why the Festival chooses to showcase, at each edition, different horizons of this expression of body and mind, not only in Cannes but also in partner cultural structures.
The Festival thus wishes to defend dance as a major art form in the region and offer a quality, diverse and accessible program.
