Floor on Fire - Battle of styles is the unprecedented meeting of some of the leading dance companies in the world, all styles combined.
Based on the principle of breakdance battles, where groups of dancers challenge each other in front of the audience; breakdancers, classical and contemporary ballet dancers and high-flying circus artists are going to try to out-dance their opponents by showing off their skills. A jury of experts is going to pick, with the help of the audience, who will be moving on to the next round.
Floor on Fire - Battle of styles was presented several times in Germany as well as on the occasion of the 17th Biennale de la Danse (Biennial dance festival) in Lyon and has always met with great success. This time around, you will be able to admire prestigious dance companies such as the Preljocaj Ballet, founded by the most famous French contemporary dance choreographer in the world, the dancers from the Semperoper Dresden Ballet, The Saxonz, one of the most famous German hip hop crews, among other high-flying circus artists.
MC DANDYGUEL will moderate this battle.
