On Sunday, April 15, the association Children & Future together with the M.A.D centre is organising the 10th No Finish Line Danse, a growing dance competition at the Rainier III Auditorium. This is a tribute to dance in all its artistic expressions – jazz, hip-hop, classical dance, and contemporary.
NFL Dance is above all an exhibition to fund actions for disadvantaged and sick children, the entirety of entries being donated to the Children & Future.
A fully-fledged Monegasque event since 2009, this year NFL Danse will host 10 competing schools, all styles of dance and levels, and 25 different choreographies. Schools will come from the Var, Gard, and the Côte d’Azur. The competition aims to present the choreographic work of dance schools without imposing a theme or an outfit. The goal is to discover the talent of the 313 dancers and their bodily expression on stage.
The event begins at 5 pm. At 8:30 pm, prizes, including the 2018 NFL Grand Prix Dance, will be awarded by a jury made up of professionals, the President of the Children & Future association and the Director of National Education, Youth and Sports.
NFL Danse is the second major annual event organised by Children & Future, after the No Finish Line, which took place in November in Monaco with more than 14,000 participants in 2017.
In a spirit of friendly but professional competition, NFL Dance invites the public to discover the work of hundreds of dancers who have come to compete for the trophies and thus allow other less fortunate children, to recover their health, to continue their studies or to find a smile.
Tickets (general seating) at the door: €15 adults and €10 children under-10, or from FNAC-Carrefour-Géant-U-Intermarché stores. For more, see www.nfldanse.com
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
