Families & Young Audiences

From the outset, Agora has organized dance-related activities aimed specifically at young audiences, families and schools and indeed, young audiences have contributed to the growth of new dance pieces for that sector. Several student matinees and workshops are presented during the season to enrich the dance experience for youngsters. How best can we prepare for the future than by developing, in all sorts of ways, the interests of the young for choreography?
