We are looking forward to 3 days of workshops with our amazing teachers: Alain Andrieux, Anna Blöchlinger, Brenda Russell, Flouer Evelyn, Meret Rufener, Michael Wälti and Xandy Liberato. Theses teachers all come from different dance backgrounds but share the passion for Fusion Dance. Some of them are internationally known and some of them are from our local scene.
Our vision is to not make workshops for the different dance styles, but to work with concepts, ideas and movements from the different backgrounds to form your unique Fusion Dance.
There will be 3 parties with live music every night. We could get the wonderful Irina&Jones to play for us again, so a great party is guaranteed! A new artist that joins us this year is Oymoz, a real musical multitalent.
Teachers: Alain Adrieux, Anna Blöchlinger, Brenda Russell, Flouer Evelyn, Meret Rufener, Michael Wälti and Xandy Liberato
