September 8 and 9, 2018: Le Super Grand Continental presented as part of the Fringe Festival in Philadelphia
Presented for the first time in 2012 in Philadephia, Le Grand Continental® will flourish once again at the Fringe Festival on September 8 and 9.
« The roar from hundreds of spectators seated on the museum steps or temporary bleachers went from loud to deafening as the choreographed dance began to take energetic life with full-body gestures and synchronized shouts. It left the audience cheering for more. » Jonathan Lai, The Philadelphia Inquirer, September 2012
This time round, 200 dancers will take over the Plaza of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in a completely revised version that has been renamed Le Super Grand Continental for the occasion. This second visit there will mark the 20th edition of this now famous line dance.
