The National University Dance Events are a true highlight for university dance and a unique opportunity to highlight students' creative work from the year and thus promote their artistic talent. The event has been scheduled for April 5 at the Maison de la Danse, where we will be able to see 180 shortlisted dancers perform!

Each year, a different university site in France hosts this artistic exchange event in its city.2018 is the Lyon Saint-Etienne university site's turn to host the event.

For the first time, these gatherings will be held at the prestigious and iconic Maison de la Danse, whose Director, Dominique Hervieu, a former dance choreographer, will be chairing the event.

The aim? The gatherings, which will run over two days from April 4 to 5, will end with a show performed by 180 students from twelve different university sites.
