Not the right moment to dance? But yes, dancing unites people.

Especially this year we have a focus on Eastern European dance culture in our program. The manifold relations between Eastern and Western Europe have been evident for centuries. The Polka triumphantly performed in the ballrooms of Paris, Germans had fun with the Mazurka, French elegance was also in demand on the Russian dance floor, dancers and choreographers traveled from capital to capital. It is worth taking a look at what unites Europe.
