Testimonies 

ciro-temoignage.jpg

"With Big Bang I was introduced to so many artists, not only the ones I danced alongside with, but also the many teachers and professionals that came to teach us. All of them were very human and open to make connections inside and outside of the classroom. I felt like I matured a lot during Big Bang. I had many "firsts", as in taking classes I had never taken before, creating my own work, speaking a new language, meeting people from around the world, ... I felt like it was the perfect place to face all of this novelty and now I feel more confident and experienced for future experiences. I don’t think I could have fallen into better hands than Stéphanie’s. She is an amazing artist, wonderful teacher, marvelous director and an incredibly sensible person. The intensive is carefully crafted in a beautiful studio, bringing vitality and creativity to the artists for their creations."
