Rond Est Le Point. Where dancers and musicians rendez-vous.
The Nouteka Collective, curators of Blended Groove Sessions, bring to you : Rond Point.
Rond Point is a space for dancers and musicians to come together to create, develop their skills and most importantly have fun!
The event starts with a body and movement workshop led by our professional dancers and ends in a freestyle dance jam session.
We welcome dancers of all styles, backgrounds and abilities. You do not need to prepare anything so come as you are, dressed to impress, but above all comfortable.
The dancers will be backed by DJ sets, musicians and live beatmakers. All musicians and vocalists present at the event are more than welcome to come on stage and take part in the Jam, using any of the available instruments.
