Evening

Events

An important part of STF is the time outside the dance studio, socializing and sharing with other dancers from all around the world. We offer many different activities like the All Style Battle, Live Music Jam, performances, Cutting Contest, and the Faculty Gala. There is also a faculty tap talk, movie showings & history lectures, where you get a chance to hear from the more experienced dancers and get a better knowledge of our art form.

Everything is open for anyone who wants to enjoy dance and live music so invite all friends and family!



Wednesday, April 5th    STF 2023 Opening Show: CABOOM - remastered

15.30 - 17.00    Master Class: Improvisation with Derick Grant

20.00                 Opening Show at SÖDRA TEATERN


We are thrilled to present Sebastian Weber Dance Company and

the piece "CABOOM - remastered" kicking off the 2023 festival!!


With SWDC you can discover tap dance in a new way: The musical power of tap combined with the visual power of contemporary dance.

CABOOM is all about chaos. About the fear and uncertainty that creates chaos, but also about the adventures and opportunities that arise from chaos. It's raw and unpolished, defiant and ruthless, and then fragile and soft again. To show that, 100% energy is not enough, but 150, always, every time.

SWDC is thought provoking, witty and surprising. It is angry, tender,

silly, but never indifferent.


Tickets for the Opening Show can only be purchased through the theater, either online or at their box office. Any questions about tickets or the booking procedure are handled by them, not STF.  TICKET BOOKING LINK
