Movement Arts Atlanta is happy to announce the creation of the parade crew, L’Esprit des Papillons. This group creates a fun way for students and supporters of MAA to move in local parades and festivals.
Open to adults and children over the age of 7. Each event will be proceeded by rehearsals to create short pieces of choreography for the event. Costumes are created by the participants within the guidelines set by MAA. The intended vibe is 1900 – 1920’s with a French flair.
There are two events planned for the crew for the 2019-2020 Season. The first is the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 4:00 pm. The second is the Inman Park Festival and Tour of Homes Parade on Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 1:00 pm.
For participation in the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade, marchers need to participate in Papillon Practices on Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13, 1:00 – 3:00 pm, complete a registration and waiver and be available for the parade on Saturday, October 19 from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

Movement Arts Atlanta thanks Alison Gordan for suggesting this wonderful idea and keeping it going. There is a time to dance, in the streets!
