A brand new space is opening to satisfy all your hunger for dance, music and celebration! Ängsbacka Dance Festival invites you on a unique journey into the art of movement and dance, to discover and explore what moves you, what entertains you, what is your inner ear eager to hear! A unique combination of traditional and contemporary, ethnic and ecstatic, spiritual and mundane, guided, semi-guided and free dance, this event offers the intimacy of couples’ dance and the liberty of free movement both for seasoned dancers and curious newbies! Not to mention, a colourful palette of musicians, DJ’s and performers to fill your hearts and make your hips shake.

There will be Ecstatic Dance, 5 Rhythms and Contact Improv just as much as unique fusions of Tango, Street Dance, Lindihop, Salsa and sooooo much more! The intention is to focus on the spiritual element of movement and dance – how to do all of it in service of a greater alignment with Self, Life and Others.

If you have a body to move and lips to smile with, this is the place to be in August. Hope you will join us!
