About Dance Reflections
The initiative Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels marks a new chapter in the history of the Maison’s ties with the world of dance. Developed in collaboration with partners from across the world, the program expresses Van Cleef & Arpels’ desire to support the choreographic heritage, nourish contemporary creation and bring this artistic universe to the widest possible audience.
Guided by the values of creation, transmission and education, this initiative aims to uphold the artists and institutions that showcase the modern and contemporary choreographic repertoire, while encouraging new productions. Since fall 2020, the Maison has been supporting diverse performances at festivals, as well as several companies for their future creations. A major annual event will also come along with these partnerships in the field of dance. Finally, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels aims to raise the general public’s awareness of the history and culture of dance.
