The City of Paris is host to an all-day event on Monday December 5th at the Conservatoire National de Région (CNR), in collaboration with the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique (CNSM). A six-man team from Denmark, including the Royal Ballet's Artistic Director as well as the head of the Royal Ballet's School, will give a conference and master classes for Paris-area teachers in the morning, and joint classes to CNSM and CNR pupils in the afternoon.

"Principals of the Royal Theatre Diana Cuni and Thomas Lund will perform the "Flower Festival" pas de deux.

These events are open to the general public and are free of charge.

On Tuesday December 6th, the director of the Conservatoire of the 7th Arrondissement of Paris will open a dance studio in the name of Bournonville, and later, Danish officials will unveil a plaque in the 1st arrondissement to mark the hotel where Bournonville resided in 1838. In the afternoon, a pedagogical event will take place at the Opera School."
