The CCNR offers long-term amateur projects.

We want to engage participants to practice, explore, feel, and open up the imagination.

Write your haka!


Between dance and rugby, a project labeled
Cultural Olympiad Paris 2024

At the beginning of the Write your haka! project, there is the creation Acta est fabula. In this piece, Yuval Pick and his dancers work around the haka, a Maori ritual dance and song performed by the New Zealand rugby team before each match. It is a demonstration of the pride, strength and unity of a group.

This project, co-directed by CCNR company dancers Noémie De Almeida Ferreira and Simon Hervé, will bring together amateur rugby players and dancers to create their own haka through hands-on workshops. A festive haka, celebrating the union.

In total, 5 workshops of 2 hours, that is to say 100 hours of practice, for two mixed and transgenerational groups, composed with the help of our partners Sport dans la Ville and the Rugby Club of Rillieux.

Every year, the CCNR invites young and old to celebrate dance at a festive and original ball! In 2022, Le Bal – bonbon pour le moral took place in a festive and sensitive atmosphere. It offered everyone, young and old, the opportunity to dance in total freedom, thanks to the know-how and artistic talent of the choreographers and dancers.
