Created in 2006, the Dance Festival is today a successful national project celebrating dance in all its facets. It was founded and developed throughout Switzerland by Reso - Dance Network Switzerland in cooperation with local partners and collaborators and countless dancers and volunteers.
Together, next to each other and for each other we want to dance together again in all forms! Together instead of alone. It is time to rediscover the sense of closeness, the warmth of physical contact, the pleasure of being among people. We can shape our bodies and in tune with the music and all the other people who love dance create forms and transform them. Let's dive into the variety of dances, into the dialogue with the music, with the person in front of us or in a group, let's explore again the spaces, the senses, let's meet the audience again.
To be together! This is the aim of the Dance Festival, which takes place in May, at the beginning of the first warm days. In more than 30 Swiss towns and municipalities, dance courses are offered to interested and curious people and performances by regional groups are presented. In addition, performances by dance professionals are toured throughout Switzerland in public spaces as part of the "Out & About" project.
Performances especially aimed at young audiences will also be touring several cities, as will many of the winners of the Swiss Performing Arts Awards. Last but not least, there will be many screenings of dance films on the programme in many cities, and there will also be entertaining digital projects.
