Elles Dansent hosts its annual charity event in Paris

7th February 2023

Elles Dansent, founded by Aude Michon, is an association which offers a safe place to dance for people diagnosed with cancer.

At the end of last year, Aude organised a charity event in Paris to raise funds for the organisation so they could continue their work in hospitals, dance studios and on stage.

Harlequin provided Elles Dansent with a Harlequin Reversible performance vinyl floor for the event.

Aude said: “Dance restores joy, confidence, creates bonds and fights against isolation.”

“The Harlequin Reversible vinyl is so beautiful and perfect to dance on. The quality of the flooring is great but the most important part is that Harlequin has allowed us to give the Elles Dansent members confidence to dance and perform in our show. Their safety is our priority”, Aude explains.

As part of the fundraising event, the film ‘Elles Dansent’ by Alexandre Messina was shown as well as a performance from members of Elles Dansent. An open discussion also took place involving oncologists and representatives of support care in cancerology.
