Vive le Danse!

Paris may be revered most often for its culinary delicacies, haute fashion and now its supermodel First Lady, but thanks to Parisian party promoters Alexandre Barouzdin and Cyril Blanc’s latest dance phenomenon, Tecktonik, the spotlight is now turning to the city’s dance floors. “Cyril and I wanted to do parties where different styles of music like electro, jump-style, hard-style and techno were played,” says Barouzdin, who, seven years ago, along with partner Blanc, started throwing Tecktonik parties at Metropolis, the 8,000-person-capacity mega-nightclub just outside Paris.
