About the JBuS
From classical dance to contemporary dance as well as jazz and urban influences, the Jeune Ballet universitaire de Strasbourg (JBuS), founded in 2020, is a dance association that draws its strength from learning to perform and meeting the public.
The JBuS association shines a light on performing arts and dance within the university of Strasbourg through through the implementation of multidisciplinary artistic projects of excellence. Moreover, student dancers, as well as community managers, video makers, photographs, graphic designers, scenographers, costume designers or even stage managers will be able to benefit from a rich and strong experience during their studies.
History and goals of the association
Founded in September 2020 at the initiative of Nathalie Boudet and Sylvie Boistelle, the Jeune Ballet universitaire de Strasbourg (JBuS) is an association under the law of 1901 whose primary aim is the promotion of dance, but not only! The association also brings talented and experienced young dancers to the forefront in a dynamic of learning, creation and artistic emergence. It particularly enables these young artists to become aware of the stage, as they are supervised by professional choreographers and technicians.
Prospects and missions of the JBuS
Financial supports allow us, in the present day and the future, to develop ambitious and demanding projects such as:
- The meeting of amateurs and professionals in the form of artist residencies;
- An annual programme of choreographic projects;
- The creation of a choreographic directory;
- The participation in university events;
- In the long run, an international opening through the development of university exchanges that contribute to the influence of the University of Strasbourg.
