CLEA Urban Dance

The City of Roubaix and the DRAC Hauts-de-France entrust the Gymnase with the coordination of the Local Artistic Education Contract - CLEA - exclusively intended for the institutions and residents of Roubaix and based on the theme of Urban Dance.


For the new CLEA Urban Dance, which will take place during the 2023/2024 school year, Le Gymnase invites three women artists to come and share their artistic universe, their practice and their career with the younger generations. Their presence demonstrates the diversity of styles and writings that constitute urban dance today and the way in which these can intersect and harmonise with other artistic fields. Based on knowledge, practice and encounter, their interventions are built with the educational objectives of each educational teams and take very different forms: meetings, conferences, shows, experiments, artistic practice, performances, etc.

CLEA Urban Dance is aimed at 3-25 year olds. It concerns schools and scholar associations, social, health and sports sectors, as well as the inhabitants of Roubaix. It starts in November 2023 with discovery and meeting times. The artists’ interventions will take place mainly between March and June 2024.
