In November of last year, we had the privilege of welcoming Florent Devlesaver, a contemporary wheelchair dancer, as part of a training in adapted and inclusive dance at the Mosa Ballet School.
Over the course of 5 days, participants in this training had the opportunity to acquire theoretical and practical foundations that will be assets in the context of their professional and artistic practice.
Practical workshops allowed several residents of SAJA Le Tabuchet from the Groupe santé CHC, who have mental or motor disabilities, to attend the dance classes given during this training at the Mosa Ballet School. They were particularly receptive to the tested lessons.
Joined by the final-year students of Mosa, it was an opportunity for the entire group to share rare moments, where each person connected with the other. These days also provided the opportunity to reconsider certain preconceptions regarding disability and broaden perspectives.
I appreciated this training because it combined both theoretical and practical aspects, allowing us, in particular, to almost immediately start teaching. Finally, it's interesting to have Florent's perspective, who doesn't have an academic profile but rather relies on his personal experience as a dancer.
Testimonial from Fleur, participant in the training
We thank Florent for sharing his expertise, as well as all the participants for being part of this incredible human experience.
