A YEAR-LONG CELEBRATION OF THE ART OF DANCE
FROM INCEPTION TO PERFORMANCE
For many years, international dance exchange between France and the United States has been thriving. The ability to cultivate new relationships and reinforce dynamic cooperation among individuals and institutions across the Atlantic has nurtured and given rise to a new generation of artists and choreographers. Mutual artistic influences have created a more inclusive and diverse dance scene. To continue the momentum, Villa Albertine, the new French institution for arts and ideas in the United States organizes a Dance Season in 2023 to reflect on the evolution of dance in a post pandemic world and to encourage a new generation of dancers and choreographers.
Albertine Dance Season includes residencies, dance companies on tour, panels and talks, and a professional symposium.
