Dance workshops for children and young adults in Kenya 

January 2019: Two of our ambassadors, Léonore Baulac and Dor Mamalia, just came back from a first Dance Summer Camp in Kenya. They taught young students living in the impoverished area of Kibera, near Nairobi, who have been following the dance classes of our wonderful partner organization Anno’s Africa . 

We are going back to Kibera in July this year to continue our action there.


 

Bring dance to children who are facing illness.

We partner with the Necker Hospital (Paris). Dancers perform for and meet with young patients and their parents thanks to the cultural events team of the hospital,  “Espace Plein Ciel“. Here below a group of artists from Taiwan, Yen-Ching Lin, I-Fen Tung, Hung Wei Yao and Rina B. Tsou during the first event in July 2018.

 

Here below few pictures of our second event that took place in September with Léonore Baulac and Hugo Marchand of the Paris Opéra Ballet. The evening left children and their families (end the lovely hospital staff) with stars in the eyes!

 

 

Meaningful partnership with a brand with a heart

October 2018: We launched a collaboration with the fair trade brand SeeMe that employs women who are victims of domestic violence. During the whole month, any piece of jewellery bought helped us, as 20% of the sales went to WDCD!
