Prince George dancers in France for international festival

Method Dance Society artistic director Shelby Richardson and three company dancers – Laura Buchanan, Shayla Dyble, and Sloane Zogas – are in Europe this week to attend International festival ‘Camping’ with the Centre National de la Danse in Lyon, France.

“Camping is a festival and an international platform for workshops and performances, a unique experience offering encounters with artists from the international choreographic scene while open to other artistic fields. Camping is an artistic space where all the poetic experiences of dance, theatre, performance and visual arts can find expression,” Centre National de la Danse.

The festival takes place in Paris, Pantin and Lyon, with the Lyon component of the festival focusing on the choreographic development for professional dancers and practitioners. Only 120 participants from around the globe are accepted into the week-long Lyon program and must apply in advance. Dancers will work with internationally recognized choreographers and artists including Katerina Andreou, Christian Rizzo, Emmanuelle Huynh, and Marco Berrettini.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have dancers from our community participating in a festival workshop of this level. Gaining access to an international platform for creativity is critical for developing the practice of dance professionals in the North,” said Shelby Richardson, Artistic Director Method Dance Society.

The dancers will begin workshop classes on Monday June 19 ending with a performance on Friday June 23. The dancers will be sharing their experience over social media so follow their Instagram page @methoddancesociety to stay up to date.
