The Gymnase | CDCN
Le Gymnase | CDCN has worked for more than thirty years towards the choreographic sector support and networking in Lille area and on the regional territory. The CDCN places at the heart of its activities the accompaniment of the artists and of the public. Thus, and around these two main axes, the activities of the structure are organized as follows:
- Support to creation and research structured around the artists at work hosting (research & creation residencies), co-production and structuration support for young companies.
- Presentation, thought around 3 festivals: Le Grand Bain, which is the central event of the CDCN thought as an immersion into the choreographic landscape / Les Petits Pas, a festival for young audiences / the NEXT festival on the Euro-regional territory and which the CDCN is part of.
- Pedagogy, awareness & mediation organized around a number of actions (Regular classes and workshops for amateurs and professional dancers, meetings & workshops with artists, ‘educational kits’ linked to dance history, public meetings, workshops for performances analysis, workshops on dance and nutrition…etc…) and proposed on both Lille area and the regional territory.
