"It is our hope to educate children and foster a love of dance through the powerful medium of storytelling."

- Mallory Loehr, Senior Vice President and Publishing Director, Random House Books for Young Readers Group

Chanel & Dance

“Always remove, always strip away. Never add… There is no other beauty than the freedom of the body.” – Gabrielle Chanel

At the beginning of the 20th century, dance opened up new paths for movement and artistic expression, illustrating its irrepressible quest for freedom. Through her close work with artistic visionaries of dance, Gabrielle Chanel catalyzed the interconnections between dance and the CHANEL style. We are excited to partner with the House of CHANEL as the brand embodies our artists’ grace, freedom and artistic expression. Watch this space for more details to be shared soon.
