Hey, contact dancer!

We are going to meet in a cozy wooden studio surrounded by mountains and forests to dance, to talk, to investigate and to have fun together. We will dive into open exploration of dance, sharing and integrating our experiences. And, of course, to ride at the best ski resort in Ukraine!
