« Draw a circle, varied the step, those characteristic elements of popular dances go through every cultures and are within our reach to now create your own group dance. Through this Master Class we will play to collectively compose dances from what draws our inspiration : a particular rhythm, an alternative song, a drawing in the space, an emotion, a preexisting dance step…  In consequence everybody will have the opportunity to experience his own creativity, to produce simple movement to share with the group and have the pleasure to practice together the dances that will have been choreographed. » Simon Bailly
