Keep an eye out for the finals at the dance conservatory of Paris: the CNSMDP (Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Dance de Paris.) You can attend a free two hour performance—the Certificat d’Interprétation exam— with the judges on the premises. The final grades are posted an hour and a half later. The Certificat d’Interprétation en Danse Contemporaine is the fifth year exam and it takes place over two days: first day is the contemporary dance session and the second day is the classical dance one. The representations are divided in two parts: first the duos in which one or both students are being graded and then the final part gathering all the students in one piece.
This a student show and it is free and open to the public. Reservations need to be made at the time of the examination, early May, by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
