Ganz Zürich tanzt

Joy of movement and FUN

Leider ist Zürich tanzt vorbei. Was bleibt, ist mein Vorsatz öfter tanzen zu gehen. Nicht nur ich hatte viel Spass, die verschiedenen Tanzstile kennen zu lernen und auszuprobieren. 18000 Teilnehmer*innen hatten die Qual der Wahl zwischen 55 Veranstaltungen und 160 Crash Kursen an 26 Spielorten.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟HAMILTON – A Musical History

Broadway’s hip hop Based musicaL

HAMILTON, the musical is a work of pure genius. Having grown up on musicals including The Phantom of the Opera, 42nd Street, and Starlight Express just to mention a few, they all pale when compared to Hamilton. Every word, every note and every movement has reason. Nothing is wasted. Don’t worry about the rap delivery, it makes the actors even more articulate.

Who is the forgotten American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton? Watch the trailer!

Zum Ballett geprügelt…

und trotzdem zum Ballett-Superstar aufgestiegen!

Yuli – ein bemerkenswerter Film über die ergreifende Lebensgeschichte des Profitänzers Carlos Acosta.

Als Kind liebte er Breakdance und hasste Ballett. Sein grosses Vorbild war der Fussballer Pelé. Aber sein Vater, ein LKW-Fahrer, erkannte das grosse Talent seines Sohnes und steckte ihn unbarmherzig in die staatliche kubanische Ballettschule.

Der Rest ist Ballettgeschichte – Carlos Acosta wird der erste schwarze Romeo beim renommierten Royal Ballet London und begeistert die Welt.
