Special thanks to Cultural Centre Caisa and Annantalo Arts Centre! It was a dream to work with you all.
We want to acknowledge your generosity, support, and help, which enabled the festival to become the amasing experience it was for everyone. We have been very happy to receive good feedback about the festival and hope to meet again for future collaborations.

Feedback  by Joseph Tebandeke (UG): Attending the XDance Festival was a truly transformative experience. From the moment I stepped into the vibrant atmosphere that was a collective effort of artists and participants, I was captivated by the energy and passion of the dancers and performers. The festival provided a diverse platform for artists sharing different backgrounds and showcasing their talent and creativity. It was inspiring to witness the loving and the togetherness of everyone and the collaborative spirit that permeated every workshop and performance. The sense of community and shared love for dance was comforting, leaving a mark on my heart. The XDance Festival not only celebrated the integrated arts movement but also fostered a deeper connection with everyone and others through the universal language of dance.

Thanks XDance Festival

Feedback: Maylis Arrabit (FR): My XDance Festival “bubble” popped and all my favorite colors are splashing all around me …

What an amazing week I had!

I am exhausted but somehow I also feel refreshed … by long and small conversations, by experimenting disabled joy many many times, by spending glorious time with old friends and colleagues, by making new friends for life (hopefully), by being praised, valued and respected for my work as an artist/teacher, for my “coolittude”, for my care, for being nervous, angry and tired, for my sense of humor and for being “beautiful” inside and out. I felt seen. It was precious and needed.
Thank you to all the people that made it happen and all the people that made me feel like I was home.
