A swingy mix of fast tap steps, acrobatics and the jazzy style of the 20s and 30s. It all starts with listening to music and interpreting it. The dancers feed on legendary artists like James Brown or the Nicholas Brothers by adding their own style.

The core of Anduze Jazz Dance Camp is the encounter of artists from different backgrounds of African American Jazz culture.
The artists, reunited by pairs or trios, will have carte blanche to create workshops to explore the links between their respective disciplines.
These moments of exchange can be entirely danced, a time for discussion, a video screening, or a mix of everything…
The themes of each atelier will be proposed by the artists themselves, and will be announced during the festival.
