Le Grand Continental 3.0

One year after Le Grand Continental – Living room style, the still confined-at-home Sylvain Émard invites you into his living room once again for a new opus: Le Grand Continental 3.0. This time, Sylvain will be accompanying you in rehearsals, step by step, as you learn a choreographic section from Le Continental XL.

In May 2011, 210 dancers performed this massive contemporary line dance as part of the Festival TransAmériques. Ten years later, you'll be giving a second wind to this dynamic dance piece, which the chosen excerpt lasts 4 minutes.

What could be more festive to celebrate 30 years of Sylvain Émard Danse? As the old saying goes, the more the merrier. Enjoy one of the benefits of what virtuality has to offer, and that is that there is NO LIMIT to the number of participants. And, NO BORDERS!

So if you've always wanted to be part of a dance troupe
Take advantage of the fact that you don't have to audition
And, like Sylvain, get set up in your living room
Nice and comfy so you can easily follow his instructions
You just might find that it's addictive! 

A 30th anniversary calls for poetry! 

We'll be all together, separately, dancing Le Grand Continental 3.0!
Sylvain can't wait to see (or re-see) you!

p.s. Be sure to invite your parents, children, friends and colleagues to take part in this unifying event!
