Le Bal

Our local French Institute is sponsoring a festival called Crossing the Line , which kicked off on Saturday with a dance party in Central Park. Here is a description of the event from their website http://www.fiaf.org/: "Le Bal NYC opens with a dance party/picnic in Central Park’s East Meadow. Choreographers from France, including Germaine Acogny, Odile Duboc, Latifa Laâbissi, and Olivier Dubois present a fresh new take on the bal populaire, creating short dances to be taught section by section to the public." These are the dancers demonstrating a work by the choreographer Latifa Laâbissi that the audience later learned. It was a fun event!

Avez-vous prélevé les nourritures spéciales l'unes des disponibles là en même temps ? Appliqué par la largeur des activités que l'institut français commandite chaque chute, y compris des installations à Macy' ; fenêtres de s.
