city moves – [K]ome Together – A Community Dance Class
Do you love movement and dance? Do you want to experience dance, not just watch it?
Then this is the place for you! This hour-long dance class in public space is aimed at people of all ages. You don’t need any previous experience to take part.
[K]ome together means moving together and experiencing your own dancing body. Whether slowly or fast, sitting or standing, with your whole body or individual parts – the focus is on the individuality of every body. [K]ome together opens up a space that brings people together in movement and energy. To this end Patricia Carolin Mai has developed a participative choreography accessible to as many people and bodies as possible.
