Dance show

7:00 p.m. – On the Main Stage of Espace 140.

In 2022 we gave the opportunity to the students of Middle School Paul Émile Victor, in Rillieux La Pape, to discover both traditional and hip hop dances. We are convinced that every generation, through meeting and discovering other cultures, has enriched traditional dances with more contemporary elements – be it instruments, rhythms, steps or attitudes. We envision the Funambal festival, and this show, as a privileged point of convergence for cultures to mingle and foster new ideas. It gives the students the opportunity to think about the music and dances shared within their families, and reflect on the diversity of cultures they encounter. The show will be the opening act of the festival, on the main stage.

Musical interludes

Between each group – Hall of Espace 140

Do you want to keep dancing between the groups too ? This year we are granting your wish by offering you interludes from other universes: find our swing, forro, salsa, tango playlists next to the bar between each concert!
