Dance the night away en francais!

About the Project

Every year, we enjoy putting together new cultural programming for the city of Atlanta. We enjoy moving our audience through music, art, food, film, and dance. The cross-cultural exchange that occurs through these mediums have the most impact. In support of our mission to promote the French language and Francophone culture, we would like to bring two strong acts to the city of Atlanta: Les Twins (Choreographers and Dancers) and/or Charles-Baptiste (French Pop Singer).

Our goal is to add one (or both) of these amazing artists to our cultural events calendar:

(1) A hip-hop dance workshop in French with Les Twins which could be attended by kids and adults alike. Although French would be the main language used, dance would be the universal language to unite the diverse group of potential attendees. French dancers, choreographers, and models. Often referred to by their respective nicknames, "Lil Beast" and "Ca Blaze", they are recognized internationally for their talents in new style hip-hop dancing. Les Twins have been featured dancers for various music artists, including Beyoncé, Meghan Trainor, and Missy Elliott.

(2) We would like to host a concert with French pop singer, Charles Baptiste. Both moving and humorous, this young and witty singer-songwriter plays the piano beautifully and sings the feelings you wouldn’t dare to express. Influenced in his music by the great Seventies and in his lyrics by Anglo-saxon lyricists such as Randy Newman, Neil Hannon and Morrissey, he is in his own way an elegant representative of a blend of French traditional chanson and chic contemporary pop.

Your donation will help bring a new act and cultural experience to the city of Atlanta, reinforcing the French language through several enriching mediums: music and dance. If we meet our goal, we would be able to welcome members at a low-cost entry fee and possibly even have our youth come for free. Our goals is to make either event a huge Atlanta affair by engaging some of our corporate partners and sponsors. However, we have to make the first step and meet this goal to show them that not only are we serious about bringing these acts to Atlanta, but the support from our community vouches for our cause as well.
