About the event
Althea Dance Company will be in Paris for a 6-day annual workshop at the Fondation des Etats-Unis during summer 2023. The company will offer contemporary technique classes taught by the members of the company and by a guest teacher, repertory classes, improvisation sessions and partnering classes. The workshop also includes choreography sessions everyday for the creation of a piece on the participants, which will be presented at a show opened to the public on July 10 at the Fondation des États-Unis.
Althea Dance Company is a young contemporary dance company based in New York. The work is a blend of contemporary flow and seamless movement, yet very physical, which mixes floorwork with the lines and extensions of the dancers.
The company focuses on international collaboration with artists from different fields such as writers, musicians, painters or visuals artists. Althea Dance also likes to perform in surprising and unusual spaces such as warehouses, artist studios, art galleries or outdoor stages.
The company explores new ways of sharing dance with the audience and reaching out to people who may not be used to the contemporary dance scene.
So far, Althea Dance Company has performed internationally, mainly in the United States, France and Mexico and is aiming to keep expending its international voice.
