The Opera Bastille in Paris is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The modern opera house was commissioned for the bicentennial of the French Revolution. The theatre attracts one of its youngest audiences and the Hip Hop will take part in the celebration this 2019.
A beat. Everything begins with a beat, a rhythm and movement. That’s just what brings together different forms of dance. To celebrate the anniversary of the Paris Opera, the Academy, in collaboration with Juste Debout, will be offering the public a grand Hip Hop battle at the Palais Garnier.
After regional heats, the winners will gather together on December 26, 2019 to compete in the finals on the stage of the Opera Garnier. Between the hip-hop battles, the audience will also have a chance to appreciate the virtuosity and excellence of some of the great stars of street dance, such as Salah Benlemqawanssa and Neguin as well as dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet in performances celebrating movement and music.
