“The Association Les Fêtes d'Hébé brings together those interested in the practice of the dance of the 15th to 18th centuries, both of the "belle danse" and "danse noble" of the balls and of the theatre. The programs of the Association include the dances of the repertory drawn from primary historic source references as well as original choreographic creations. The theatrical forms include the comédie-ballet, the tragédie lyrique and the opéra-ballet.
Working with the ensemble Les Musiciens de Mademoiselle de Guise, we offered André Campra's L’Europe Galante in 2001, Henry Purcell's Dido & Aeneas in 2002 and M.P. de Montéclair's Les Fêtes de l'Eté in 2003 at the Salle Rossini in Paris, a production on M.A. Charpentier's works in 2004 at Lycée Jacques Decour in Paris. These productions are also the opportunity to showcase young artists who are completing their training and to complete their introduction to the world of historic theatre productions.
The Association Les Fêtes d’Hébé offers everyone, both amateurs and professionals, the opportunity of training in baroque dance through weekly courses directed by Cécília Grácio Moura as well as workshops at various times in the year.
Bruna Gondoni is also invited for courses and workshops for Italian Renaissance dance.”
