FESTIVAL JOAT

Come celebrate street dance in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles!

From the streets to the stage, artists of many different backgrounds dance, compete, and share their passion with all the generosity and intensity that drive them. Electric and festive.

Initiated by Handy “HYA” Yacinthe, the JOAT Festival proposes a new edition carried by the street dance culture as a cultural and social factor. The festival will offer seven days of programming and activities featuring more than 150 artists who will immerse you in the world of street dance: high-level battles, breaking, popping, hip hop, beatmakers, youth battle, introductory street dance workshops, master classes, exhibition! An opportunity to discover some of the Afro-American community dances that have become popular around the world.

Co-produced by Jack Of All Trades and Danse Danse.
