Frequently Asked Questions – Summer Dance Forever 2019

Workshops

Q: I would like to know some more about the dance workshops. 

  • Can anyone register? 
  • Is there an age limit? 
  • Is there any required experience? 

A: Anyone can participate in the workshops, you only need to buy a ticket. The workshops are for serious dancers who want to work on their skills and techniques, this means that we advise to have some previous dance experience but you don’t have to have a certain level of experience. There is no set age limit, but probably 12 years or older is a good mainstay. 

Q: Is it possible for someone with little prior experience in dancing to take part in the workshops of Summer Dance Forever 2019?
A: The workshops are for serious dancers who want to work on their skills and techniques, this means that we advise to have some previous dance experience but you don’t have to have a certain level of experience. The teachers try to accommodate for different levels in the class.

Q: I noticed some teachers have more than one class during the week. Will they be teaching different things each class, or will it be the same information?
A: Each class will be a little different, as the teachers also adapt the class to the dancers who are taking it. Often we see dancers taking more than one class by the same teacher, to keep learning from the same teacher and developing their skills.

Festival ticket

Q: Is it possible to go to all the battles and theatre shows?
A: The 9 days pass gives you entrance to all the events: preselections, battles, theatre shows and parties. For some events, mainly some of the theatre shows and the seminar, there is limited capacity and entrance is on a first come, first serve basis. There has always been plenty of capacity at the preselections, battles and some of the theatre shows in larger venues.

Q: I tried to purchase a ticket but it didn’t seem to go through.
A: The tickets are not sold out, so it should really work. Maybe you can try again? If it does not work, please make a screenshot and send it to me so we can have a look at what is going wrong.
