Saint-Sauveur Dance !


The entire city of Saint-Sauveur will move to the rhythm of its Festival with this new activity that invites the public to dance with us. Each evening will start with a free class given by professional artists in the field, followed by a live performance where the audience can join in the dance and show off their new-found skills. Presented in collaboration with the City of Saint-Sauveur, these friendly evenings will make the pleasure of dance accessible to all!
