Teaching the art of dance

Away from the stage, the Migros Culture Percentage organises performances and dance workshops for around 3,000 school students. Swiss dance professionals are also among those to benefit: during the festival, the visiting choreographers and dancers share their knowledge and skills in masterclasses.
