Dance and Empathy

List of 1 items.

  • 5th Grade | November 4-8, 2019

Dancer and choreographer Aurélien Kairo returns to the Lycée with collaborator Karla Pollux to teach students emotional sensibilities and empathy through dance. This year, he will be offering dance workshops which foster the creation of listening skills, improvisation with a lead and follower and improvisation with music. Students will learn to react in a more sensitive way to each others' expressions.
Initially a danser in famous French festivals such as the Midem de Cannes and the Francofolies, Aurélien Kairo organizes in 1997 the first French Breakdance Battle. In the following years, he takes on the role of choreographer and in 2002, opens the Cie De Fakto, a hip-hop dance company based in Lyon.
