Every year, a score and more of Swiss cities hosts a whole weekend of dance events taking place in theatres, in public spaces, in the street and just about everywhere. From hip hop to tango and from contemporary dance to African, everyone is free to choose their own programme. And everyone can go along and discover the talent of famous choreographers and young performers alike, try out some dance steps, watch dances from all over the world, take part in some great parties, find out about the activities of a host of local dance schools, get caught up in unexpected flash mobs and experience innovative projects devised especially for the occasion. In Ticino, the hub of all this activity is Lugano, with its streets, its piazzas and its public and cultural spaces, but also its Foce Theatre and Studio. But the festival also brings plenty of events to other places, as its partners also include such important museums as the Vincenzo Vela Museum in Ligornetto, the Mendrisio Art Museum and Villa dei Cedri in Bellinzona.
The Dance Festival is truly an event for everyone! And that includes affordability: if you buy the badge (it only costs CHF 15.- and it’s even free for those aged up to 16), you can take part in all the events in the programme in cities all over Switzerland!
