It is one of the most important dates of Bolzano's cultural programme for the summer. For almost two weeks, in the second half of July, the capital of Alto Adige turns into an artistic display with an international flair for dance lovers and those with an interest. Over the years, world famous artists, national companies and special projects have made this occasion a key reference point in the European dance scene. Bolzano thrives on its deep-rooted duality of cultures, the festival, entertaining, yet educational, attracts professionals and lovers of all forms of dance who find an "excuse" to visit Bolzano in the middle of summer. The schedule of dance shows is accompanied by workshops for the younger ones who are offered special packages: from creative dance to flamenco, from hip hop to meeting the artists, long nights of dance, courses for professionals who wish to improve for example their flamenco or classical ballet, modern dance or latin jazz classes.
