DANCE AT HOME

DANCE AT HOME

 

The initiatives of artists’ collectives, artists, and creative centres to invite dance at home in times of lockdown!

 

This period of isolation does not prevent the imagination from flowing and initiatives from blowing. In these particular circumstances of lockdown, the artists have mobilized themselves to offer you entertainment and dance classes to do at home. TROIS C-L has listed the different projects of artists. You can discover below all the different projects set up by the choreographic scene.

 

INITIATIVES FROM LUXEMBOURG:

 

Shoe Dances in pandemic times by Elisabeth Schilling

 

Elisabeth Schilling invites you to take your favorite pair of shoes, put them on and make a short video of dancing, walking, jumping… and send it to her. Her goal is to create a video that regroups all these pairs of shoes and to post them in order to bring back smile in this period of being in lockdown. This initiative is open to everyone, professionals, dancers, choreographers, and amateurs at home.

The video should be approximately 20-30 seconds long and can be sent to Elisabeth Schilling on her Instagram, her Facebook, or directly on her email.

The artist has already received many videos, from all over the world, from people of all ages, artists and amateurs! You can already see her current project  HERE

LET’S DANCE de Léa Tirabasso

 

Léa Tirabasso a lancé une cagnotte pour lever des fonds afin de soutenir la campagne #GetLippy of the charity The Eve Appeal.  The Eve Appeal charity is raising awareness & funding research into the five gynae-cancers: Vaginal, Vulval, Ovarian, Cervical and Womb. A very important charity for the choreographer, who is one the ambassadors.

In order to reinforce this awareness among the public, Léa Tirabasso is offering an online contemporary dance class on Saturday 9 May 2020 from 10am to 11am via Zoom. The concept is simple: after your donation, a zoom link will be sent to you to participate to the class on Saturday morning and all you have to do is put on comfortable clothes (red!), even in your pyjamas!

There is no age restriction, no need to have a specific level in dance, or a large space.

All information can be found HERE
