Winter Dance is tanz raum’s intimate dance, rhythm and meditation retreat before Christmas and the New Year.


Live music invites us to explore musical modes that are linked to distinguished emotional states. The time before Christmas and New Year is special. Ainhoa Izagirre, Caroline Chevat and Claudia Heinle invite you to slow down, take the time to immerse yourself in silence, movement, and music and to reestablish your center and focus.
