Festival Story:

This is a see it, do it festival. You can see different kinds of dance created by traditional and avant-garde dance companies. Then, you get to do it as well! Barefoot dancing, ballet, flamenco, french rock or Polish folk dancing- just a few examples of how you can join in the fun. Each event is clearly labeled as either one to watch or one to participate in, so pick accordingly!
