Biennale de Dances in Seychelles hailed as a great success

Biennale de Dances in Seychelles hailed as a great success ( Members of the public had the chance to enjoy an array of dance performances at the International Conference Centre of Seychelles last Saturday during the finale of the eight Biennale de Dances des Seychelles.

Dancers from Seychelles, Madagascar, Reunion, and Rodrigues of Mauritius took part in this year’s 10-day biennale event.

From August 24, members of the different dance companies coming from the 4 countries have been learning new dance techniques from the international choreographer from the United Kingdom, Charlotte Pook, for 2 weeks. Local choreographers also took part in the dance sessions.

The dancers showed off their newly-acquired skills learned from the sessions in the finale on September 5 organized by the National Conservatoire of Performing Arts (NCPA) with the support of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture.

Speaking at the finale of the Biennale de Dances, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, said this biennale is set to put the country’s culture at the forefront.

“Those taking part in this biennale are not only showcasing their dancing skills and sharing new techniques, but they are also showcasing their different cultures,” the Minister said.

Hailing this biennale as a success, Minister St.Ange thanked Mr. Pierre Joseph, the Director of the National Conservatoire of Performing Arts, and his team members for staging this great event.

Among those who were also enjoying the show and supporting the continued development of culture in the islands were the Minister for Investment, Entrepreneurship Development and Business Innovation, Michael Benstrong; Principal Secretary for Culture Benjamine Rose; Director General for Culture Marcel Rosalie; and Pierre Joseph, who heads the National Conservatoire of Performing Arts.

Certificates were later presented with members of the dance companies, and a token of appreciation was given to Miss Pook and Mr. Pierre Joseph.
