Did you ever feel the urge to dance in the museum? You can! On March 1st, Michele Rizzo teaches a dance workshop in the Teijin Auditorium. The participants are guided with very specific focus into simple yet accurate activities such as dancing on the beat, dancing alone and dancing with others attempting to reach a state of flow.

By displacing trance and techno dance from the club environment into the museum, the HIGHER workshop offers the opportunity to experience dance in a hybrid formula between recreational and technical.

Good coordination, stamina, musicality, and curiosity towards techno and trance dancing are required for this workshop. Experience is not obligatory, but sneakers are!
