Zurich Tanzt 2013 is an amazing dancing extravaganza that will be taking place in Zurich from the 3rd – 5th May. It will feature dance events of every type imaginable and there will be dancing for everyone no matter what your age or interest.
The auditions or “casting events” for the play “The Show Must Go On” by Jérôme Bel at Schiffbau will take place at Club Plaza on 27th January. The organisers are looking for 26 diverse people from the Zurich Area, who want to dance on stage for the opening piece. If you’re interested, you can register here up until 20th January. So if you’re keen to get involved and show the world that you can dance – sign up now!
There will be 15 short dance performances by dancers from all over Europe, as well as some crash courses in different styles of dancing and a variety of events throughout the city. There will even be one big event at Zurich Hauptbahnhof on Saturday 4th May to show the world that Zurich “rocks”. They’re keeping it under wraps at the moment but there will be more information to follow.
So don’t worry if you’ve got two left feet, or no rhythm, you’ve got plenty of time to start practising. After all, there are still a few weeks until the beginning of May, and it looks as if the whole of Zurich will be dancing that weekend!
