Ecole Des Sables

The association Jant-Bi / l?Ecole des Sables was created in 1998 with the aim of becoming the cradle for dancers from the whole of Africa, where young dancers can feel at home and can benefit from professional training, giving them a solid foundation in their life as an artist and creating an openness towards international dance.

Since 1998, the association Jant-Bi has been working on a training programme for young dancers and choreographers of African origin in the framework of the Ecole des Sables, International Centre for Traditional and Contemporary African Dances.

The International Centre of Traditional and Contemporary African Dances is both a place of encounters and exchange for dancers from Africa and from all over the world.

Its exceptional setting offers the possibility of individual or collective residences to all creators who seek new sources of inspiration on African soil: writers, artists, musicians etc?

The conference hall is available for conferences and seminars.
