Le Grand Continental – Live Arts/Fringe Festival

Le Grand Continental performed Sunday in front of the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Here are some segments of the dance performance. I only had one camera and no audio recorder, hence the audio is rough (sorry). My friend and neighbor, Liz Clark, performed in the dance routine. You can see her in the video right up front. See below the video for more information on Le Grand Continental.

About the Show
Montréal-based choreographer Sylvain Émard shatters the distinctions between line dancing and contemporary dance, creating an extremely colorful and contagious 30-minute event. Created at Montréal’s internationally renowned Festival TransAmériques (FTA) in 2009, Le Grand Continental originally featured sixty amateur dancers. Since then the show has tripled in size, most recently presented in the historic center of Mexico City with movement inspired by Latin social dancing. This time around, the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival will host the largest presentation of its kind with 200+ performers of all ages and backgrounds, ranging in experience from professional dancers to pure amateurs. It will be a line dance extravaganza filled with contagious community spirit, a show not to be missed.
