DNSE Le premier centre de danse francophone à New York!

Harlem et le Cabaret Noir

Harlem 1934. Le Jazz coule à flot, le champagne aussi. On y dance, on s’amuse. C'est la Belle Epoque à L'américaine. Comme le chante Claude Nougaro "c'est tout noir et c'est tout blanc». Harlem aujourd'hui connait une renaissance qui rappelle le bon vieux temps mais  à la seule différence que la France y est dûment…

The Heart of Europe in New York

In May 1624, the ship “Nieu Nederlandt” carried about 30 Belgian families to the Manhattan Island Coast, what is today Governor’s Island. The families then dispersed throughout the northeast into Delaware, New Jersey, and Connecticut, mostly remaining in New York City. It is said that when Henry Hudson sailed up the New York river, three Belgians accompanied him, exemplifying the…
