The Call of Dance Senegal

Share this page:
Dance is developing in abundance throughout our modern world, with new forms born locally then broadcasted widely. Dances are then adapted, mixed, and re-interpreted in a dynamic process of cultural exchange and infinite creativity. The regain of prominence of traditional dances, which are preserved with pride and passion, is a part of this culture and influences globalization. Developing dances are becoming hybrids through these meetings and discovery that blend modernity and tradition.

The role of body movements in each society reflect a certain state of the world. Dance can have a social message, be transgressive, express some ancestral cultural behavior, or the simple need to feel the music and slip into a trance-like state. L’Appel à la Danse seeks to capture the beauty in danced moments, painting portraits of individuals all over the world who express their need to dance.
