What is Défilé:
Défilé means "Parade or procession of dancers." I'm not sure how they began to use it, but The Paris Opera has used the term this way for many years. Both from the French and the American point of view many have not liked the use of the term.
We have fashioned our end of year performances around this concept because it allows our studio to grow in numbers and our performances to be held within a reasonable time frame.
Westside Studio's Défilé is enjoyable, moves quickly and gives every dancer an opportunity to be on stage for an age appropriate amount of time.
