Under the motto "research dance - dance research", dancers, lovers of dance and scholars from all over the world come together to discuss, dance, gain inspiration and make new contacts.

        • Lectures present the current state of research.
        • Workshops give an opportunity to try out new dance styles and reconstructions.
        • Compact performances show current artistic interpretations.
        • Dance evenings and a celebratory ball provide a diversity of new contacts.
        • Sharing life together in the castle enables intensive days of encounter.
