DANSE'AMU Cie Universitaire


The AMU Dance Company is directed by Véronique Asencio.
Dancers from the Ballet Preljocaj regularly intervene during rehearsals.



The Company

Aix-Marseille University is pleased to announce the creation of a university dance company.

The creation of the company started in 2019 with the setting up of weekly classes and rehearsals open to the university's pool of dancers, in collaboration with SUAPS and STAPS.

This company is built in close collaboration with the Ballet Preljocaj, who works regularly with the company throughout the year, a real artistic added value. It is directed by Véronique Asencio, dancer and choreographer.

The university company will aim, through choreographic creation and the accompaniment of major cultural and university events throughout the year, to carry the values of artistic excellence of Aix-Marseille University.

Rehearsals take place every week in Aix and Marseille, at a rate of 5 hours per week.

Tuesday evenings from 6.15pm to 8.15pm in Marseille (Ecole Nationale de Danse de Marseille, 20 Bd de Gabès 13008 Marseille)
Saturday mornings from 10am to 1pm in Aix (Le Cube, Site Schuman)

Involvement in the Company therefore requires a certain availability as well as the rigour inherent in a high-level ensemble.

The "Vivier"

In parallel with the company, a "pool" of dancers is constituted and will only follow the "technical courses" proposed by Véronique Asencio at the beginning of the company's rehearsal sessions. A show will be staged with this group in April 2020.

From October:
Tuesday evenings from 19h to 20h in Marseille (optional)
Saturday mornings from 10am to 11.30am in Aix.

Recruitment in progress!
