SWOP – International dance festival for children and young people arranged by Aaben Dans

Dear all
It is with great sadness that we must announce the cancellation of our beloved SWOP Festival 2020, which was supposed to have taken place April 30-May 5.
Due to the current conditions caused by the Covid19, we do not find it responsible for the audience, artists, volunteers or staff to go through with an international dance festival for young people and children.

We hope everyone stays well and gets through this crisis in the best possible way. We continue our work with future projects and we are looking forward to being around each other again and being able to move together – hopefully soon.

Stay well and keep up the good spirit!

Warm, digital, dance wishes and lots of love

Aaben Dans and SWOP Festival

“I think it is a fundamental important festival because of its concentration of dance and the interest in young audiences. Both of these areas are areas that needs to be developed, not just in Denmark but in UK too.” Paula Redway fra Salisbury Arts Centre, visitor SWOP 16
