Unique performing opportunities for all our students
Centre Rézodanse – Egypte organises each year a show which involves all the students of the Ecole de Ballet d’Alexandrie, as well as students from other groups (classes for adults, contemporary dance and hip hop). The shows take place at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina and attract a very wide audience, including many schools from Alexandria. They provide our students with the unique opportunity of taking part in a full creation process and experiencing the thrill of performing on Alexandria Library’s main stage.
In 2010, the ‘Larmes du Nil’ show, dealing with the issue of over-exploitation of water resources, saw more than 1500 attendees, including pupils from 5 different schools. Rézodanse organised a specific workshop prior to the show with young children from the French school in Alexandria, where participants had the opportunity to discover the soundtrack, the story and the costumes of the show and to practise some of the steps that they would see performed on stage by our dancers.
