Rabat – 186 dancers in Morocco competed to win a place in the Danser-Casa Hip-Hop Dance Project, but only eight were selected.
Following an audition which took place in December 2016 at Casablanca’s French Institute, only seven Moroccans and a Congolese girl will participate in the project.
The eight dancers were selected by two renowned professional French Hip-Hop dancers and choreographers, Kader Attou and Mourad Merzouki.
Danser-Casa is a dance project which aims to stimulate and strengthen dancers’ sense of purpose with the aim of encouraging them to pursue their dreams.
The project has provided the eight-dancers with the opportunity to collaborate with two iconic hip hop dancers, Attou and Merzouki, who have been supervising and choregraphing dances for these young performers through several workshops.
The two French choreographers will be accompanying the eight selected amateur hip-hop dancers from May 2 to 7.
The project is chaired by Anne Sophie Dupoux, former administrator of the Theatre de Sursenes, in France.
Several public rehearsals have been performed by the dancers in different locations, with a view to enhancing their artistic skills ahead of the big show, scheduled to take place in March of 2018.
The hip-hop performers are set to carry out a public rehearsal event on May 5 at Casablanca’s French Institute.
