FANCY FOOTWORK

Living France - - What’s New -

Ev­ery sec­ond year, Lyon is over­taken by toe tap­ping, pirou­et­ting, hip cir­cling dancers from around the globe for The Dance Bi­en­nial. There are more than 200 per­for­mances in a va­ri­ety of dance styles across 67 the­atres and venues large and small. If you feel the urge to join in with the danc­ing there are work­shops tak­ing place dur­ing the fes­ti­val, and many of the chore­og­ra­phers will be do­ing Q&A ses­sions so you can find out what in­spires their cre­ations. If you need a big spec­ta­cle to en­tice you to the dance side, the big­gest chore­o­graphic pa­rade in Europe, a Pa­rade for Peace, takes place on 16 Septem­ber, from Rue De La République and end­ing in Place Bel­le­cour. The fes­ti­val runs from 11-30 Septem­ber. bi­en­nalede­ladanse.com
