Dance teaching: Rachida Dati intends to defend hip-hop in conservatories

Sunday, Rachida Dati was the guest of the Planète rap show on Skyrock. Asked about a bill adopted by the National Assembly on March 7, which intends to “professionalize dance teaching by taking into account the diversity of practices,” the Minister of Culture wanted to be reassuring. The law has not yet been included in the Senate and is “halfway there”. “So we can improve it,” said Rachida Dati, in favor of “enriching the program which allows for validation.”

The text intends to modify the education code which provides that “no one may teach dance for remuneration or use the title of dance teacher”, without a state diploma, an equivalence or an exemption. The article in question currently only concerns classical, contemporary and jazz dances, and the text intends to generalize it to all dances.

The diploma will be assessed at Bac 3 level. The text provides that teachers who have taught a previously unsupervised dance for more than four years will be able to request an exemption. Holders of a diploma from a private school too, via a simplified procedure. “Today, the hip-hop professional can give lessons in entertainment centers, in MJCs [...] but he cannot give hip-hop lessons in conservatories,” a- she lamented, emphasizing that the discipline could certainly be taught there, but by a classical, contemporary or jazz dance teacher.

“A young hip-hop professional, I prefer to see him teaching hip-hop himself in a conservatory rather than a teacher” of the other three dances, she confided. The Minister of Culture once again reassured the numerous associations which give courses in the region. “You will be able to continue teaching in your case,” she said. In the Assembly, Rachida Dati had already voted for an amendment excluding “animation” from the scope of the law. She also announced her intention to increase from three currently to at least “six in 2026” the number of choreographers from hip-hop at the head of the 19 National Choreography Centers. “Hip-hop floods all of French culture and it is very little represented in the authorities, in the institutions,” she concluded.
