First developed in Mexico City by choreographer Mariana Arteaga, Úumbal made its U.S. premiere as part of the 2019 Fringe Festival. Follow and dance along with Úumbal below.

Le Grand Continental Philadelphia  (2012) & Le Super Grand Continental  (2018)

For the 2012 Fringe Festival, FringeArts and choreographer Sylvain Émard assembled 200 local dancers of all ages and backgrounds to show off the talent, charisma, and personality of Philadelphia. Six years later, Émard returned to Philadelphia to create an even bigger, better, more electric performance with Le Super Grand Continental. Relive the fun here.
