You?re not all that deprived of free will,

And even if you were just like a field stone,

The avalanche will change its course

In relation to the sort of stones it courses over.

 (Czesław Miłosz)

 

The current shape of the Workshops is 23-years-long joint work in progress. On the one hand, it is Us: the organizers and pedagogues, on the other, You, the participants. The permeation of our drives, desires, goals and capacities is a force which transcends all hardships and yields the expected effect in the form of Dancing Poznań. Held each August, this joint, communal dancing event pervaded by positive energy rolls like a ball which changes us and the world.

I hope you will enjoy a plethora of major discoveries and meetings, learn more about others and yourselves, fulfill your dreams and open new paths in the field of dance.
