Linka D: International Dance Day
The new D line (Linka D), combining music and dance, will run from the Ponec theatre via Alfred ve dvoře to Studio Alta!
The D Line takes the form of a parade with three stops, including three performances as well as refreshments, connecting three of Prague’s main spaces for contemporary and living art. Anyone can ride the D line – the short, the tall, families, seniors, anyone and everyone! Don't forget to bring your bicycle, scooter, riding toy or any other human-powered vehicle, and join the promenade!
• Departure from PONEC: 3:00 - 4:15 pm. Experience Yourself Differently / Ponec – The Dance Venue
Marking worldwide dance celebrations, participants will discover the unexpected movement and voice potential that lies hidden within. All generations – grandmothers and grandfathers, mothers and fathers with children, students – will be offered the chance to explore dance, movement and voice as forms of expression, which will bring relaxation, joy and self-recognition. This event is sure to be quite a ride, and all are welcome! Experienced artists and instructors like Lenka Bartůňková and Ridina Ahmed will initiate participants into the secrets of their art.
