Cannes Dance Festival

Over the years since 1984, the Cannes Dance Festival has been an important meeting-place of modern and contemporary dance.

The production value of these lively events is very high, and while most of the dances are very modern (expect to see some nudity!), you can also find ballet and other traditional performances. The festival focuses on a unification of the diversity of choreographic arts in the French Riviera.

This festival has a particular historical relationship in the world of dance. It established its fame through performances of contemporary dance, not only with companies of international reputation but including fresh and promising new performers. It is a venue for greater visibility of exceptional talent in the choreographic sphere.
