What is Numeridanse?
Numeridanse is headed and coordinated by the Maison de la Danse, Lyon, and was imagined by the director Charles Picq. Since the outset, Numeridanse was created and has been developed hand-in-hand with the French National Centre for Dance (CND) and has been supported by the BNP Paribas Foundation and the French Ministry for Culture.
A community platform
Theatres, festivals, companies, artists, institutions, National Choreographic Centres, producers... these international organizations enrich Numeridanse’s video base continually by proposing their video collections on our platform as well as through the range of informational tools available on our site. This community also plays a key role in our site’s daily life, as well as in its development and financing.
