The best dancers in hip hop, from Denmark and abroad, will display and celebrate cutting edge, old school, and experimental urban dance, and you are invited.

We will be breakdancing, popping, skating, even doing parkour. The Dance Chapel’s in-house dance company, Uppercut Dance Theatre will be performing their latest hit show PANIC DAY, and choreographer Anastasija Olescuka has created the piece KLIK:O:KLOK with young as well as professional dancers. The internationally acclaimed trio Femme Fatale is bringing two pieces to the festival, France is bringing both parkour and break dance, and from Germany we will be joined by two hip hop dancers with a love for Charleston.

The Dance Chapel is housing mind blowing performances and will be celebrating a family day in the courtyard and dome hall. The festival will also include performances in the newly opened Tingbjerg Art Center, as well as site specific pieces at Brønshøj Torv, Ruten in Tingbjerg, Den Røde Plads, Blågårds Plads – and in front of Grundtvig’s Church. The festival will finish with an event at The Library on Rentemestervej. Additionally we also have school plays, workshops, masterclasses and plenty other activities scheduled.
