In continuation of Francine Lancelot’s work the characteristic of l’Éventail Dance Company is Baroque Dance.

Just like philosophers, artists, painters or architects, we are interested in the historical sources of the art of dance. The concepts of fine arts and literature remain with us today but the seventeenth century also recognized “belle danse”, and this has been an inexhaustible source of creative inspiration for our baroque dance over the past thirty years.

Convinced of the possibilities of this cultural memory which engenders creativity, modernity and the accessibility to a large public, l’Éventail and its team – 6 permanent employees and about 20 freelance artists and technicians – extends its work on 5 axes that work in interaction:

Creation, Distribution, Creative Learning, Research, Education

L’Éventail Dance Company is registered by the Pays de la Loire region’s Ministry of Culture (DRAC) and subsidized by the Pays de la Loire’s Regional Council, the General Council of Sarthe, the city of Sablé-sur-Sarthe.
