Too stiff? Extremely shy? No sense of rhythm? Set all your preconceptions and excuses aside because here comes a new Bal Moderne... The contemporary version of the “bal populaire” will make even the most wooden wallflower an inspired dancer. Two guest choreographers will teach two short dances of 4 minutes each in two 45-minute sessions. No dance experience is required, but you do need some concentration and, especially, lots of enthusiasm. Big name choreographers like Wim Vandekeybus, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Michèle Anne De Mey, etc. have whipped up veritable dance crazes at previous editions. The guests on 8 and 15 July are a surprise, but one thing is for sure, there will be a great atmosphere. A DJ will animate the dance sessions with his own tunes and keep the energy pumping between the 45-minute sessions; a perfect marriage between the group feeling and your highly personal creativity or dance style. For this open-air edition, Bal Moderne is collaborating with piQniQ from Brusselicious. An ideal occasion to picnic on the grass (before or after the Ball) or to drink an aperitif. In short: do not expect the seriousness of a (technical) dance class, or the trendy atmosphere of a club. Expect solidarity, fun, and of course some enjoyable exercise, for all ages. Now all we need is some summery sunshine!
