The Xperience is an event where different street dance communities come together to share and learn from each other! The Xperience offers a weekend of workshops and parties to create a link between different cultures and dances from the African diaspora. Together with 9 amazing artists you'll explore the Jazz continuum.
It will include 6 hours of workshops that are open to every dancer who wishes to broaden their horizons!
The workshops will feature the collaboration of artists exploring the connection between dance styles like hip hop, house, popping, locking, afro, lindy hop, jazz...
For its third edition The Xperience will work in collaboration with LouisLou in Ghent, Belgium, sharing the talent of its artists at "LouisLou's Dance Madness" during the Ghent Festivities (Gentse Feesten), one of the biggest popular festivals in Europe recognised as a Flemish intangible heritage.
The Xperience will anchor itself in the heart of the Ghent party life. As a participant, you'll have the opportunity to attend The Xperience workshops as well as the festivities that The Xperience artists will take part in (shows, DJ acts, battles...)
