‘Club Dance Studio’ opens in Algiers
A dance studio in AlGiers, Morocco, is the latest in a series of dance studios set up by dance artists in the country, as it seeks to provide a place for young people to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and find inspiration.
The studio is named Club Dance Studio and it has been run by a group of young people who share the goal of making music that will not only inspire them, but also bring them into the wider world.
The owner, Ali Ali, says they are trying to take the dance music scene from the city to the country.
“The dance scene in Algarve is very small compared to what it used to be, but the dance is still there and the music is still happening,” he told Al Jazeera.
“In Algier, we are creating a space for people to come together, find inspiration, create and share their ideas.”
The idea of making the studio has been sparked by the recent influx of young dance artists to Algiris, the capital of Morocco.
They come from different parts of Morocco to make music, some from the capital, and some from small towns like the town of Arrakis.
“In the past, young people would come to the dance studio and they would be bored.
We were bored of it, and so we created a space where people can go, do their own thing and create their own music, and we’re taking it there,” Ali told AlJazeera.
The new dance studio is located in the Algiri district of Algir, located in a town in the northeastern part of the Moroccan countryside.
Ali told the Al Jazeera that his first idea was to open a studio in the town but the local government turned him down.
The idea for the studio was inspired by the work of the late DJ, DJ Teflon, who used to run the dance club in the city of Algarv, which he founded in the 1970s.
Ali said the studio is different from the other dance studios in Al Giers because it is not run by the local authorities.
“We are creating the space where all of the artists can meet and work together,” he said.
Algiri has been hosting a number of dance festivals since it was created, and it is now hosting the first dance festival, called the Jazz Jam, in April.
Ali told Al Jazeera that he hopes the Jazz Jams will attract more young people, as well as create a platform for other artists.
“If we can create a dance space, we can host more festivals,” he explained.
The Algirais Dance Studio has two floors.
There are four dancers in the studio, and each of them have their own dance studio.
Ali Ali says the dance artists are using the space to make their own work.
“We have created a place where people like to meet and have a space to express themselves, and to work together.
It’s an opportunity for them to create their work.
We are creating this space to inspire people,” Ali said.
The dancers are all artists who come from diverse backgrounds, Ali told Radio France Internationale.
“The dancers come from a variety of backgrounds, and many are musicians, DJs, dancers, and actors,” he added.
