This year, the second edition of DO Festival will take place and it will happen in Gdansk, Poland.

Each day we will offer a freshly prepared, vegan, gluten-free lunch that comes at an affordable price. Prior to the festival start we will contact registered participants to confirm whether they would like to purchase the lunch.

Which language will be used for the workshop conduction?

All classes and workshops will be held in English. In case of organisational questions we are happy to help with the following languages: Polish, German, French, Swedish, Portuguese, English and a bit of Russian. Contact us via info@dothefestival.com

Do I need to be a professional dancer to participate in the workshops and classes?

In 2022, DO Festival offers classes for two different levels: Dance Open & Dance Officers.

With the group “Dance Open” we wish to address movers and dancers that see dance as their hobby and free-time activity, dancers who want to return to the training after a time of absence and people who would like to broaden their dance experience in a fun and challenging way. It is not necessary to be a professional full-time dancer in order to join this group during the festival. However we encourage you to only participate if you already have some movement/dance experience and if you see yourself as a physically active person.

“Dance Officers” on the other hand wishes to speak to all movers and dancers who are advanced free-time movers or currently in a professional dance formation, movers who have graduated from a dance formation or people who see dance as their profession: teachers, performers, creators. The class will have a higher pace, skip the introduction of certain basic elements and wants to feed you with input and ideas for your personal work & training.
