DSC_7997 Spotlight Danse Studio2 vainqueur NFLDanse 17The ninth edition of NFL Danse, organised on February 12 by the Children & Future association with the MAD centre, took place in an atmosphere of great excitement. This original dance competition welcomed nearly 300 competitors of all styles and levels, from 14 schools, in Monaco, Gard, the Var, Alpes-Maritimes and Italy.

The competition gives freedom to the choreographers whose artistic work is judged on the merits of each piece, as much for the technique, the creativity, the musicality and the scenic harmony in classical, jazz, contemporary and hip-hop.

The ballets are made for the public and the contest becomes a show lasting several hours supported by the fans of the schools in competition. The event ended with the awarding of trophies by a jury composed of three professionals and the President of the association Children & Future.

NFL Danse is the second biggest annual event organised by Children & Future to celebrate No Finish Line. All the proceeds from this highly valued dance contest – €10,300 for this 2017 edition – are donated to support the projects of the Monegasque association for disadvantaged or sick children, such as financing major cardiac procedures at the Cardio-Thoracic Center and the construction of two multi-sport fields in a social centre run by the Fondation de Nice in La Trinité.

For their faithful support, Children & Future acknowledges its generous donors, including the four Monegasque foundations: Cuomo, Stavros Niarchos, Sancta Devota and Mitchell.

Children & Future was also one of the eighteen charities as selected by HSH Princess Charlene to be a part of the first “Prix Princesse Charlène de Monaco-Charity Mile”, held at the Hippodrome in Cagnes-sur-Mer on Saturday, February 25, and received a donation of €2,000 after the race.
