Vision

Let’s celebrate togetherness, friendship and sharing trough of our common passion for dancing.

It is meant to be a place where dancers can forget about wrong habits such as ego and just be chill, relax and dance mainly for fun and smile.

Mission

With the slogan “Make her Smile”, we want to outline the central role of our dear follows (sisters, friends, mothers…) in our dance community. By extension, we want the event to be a place where smiles are shared among all, be it Leads or Follows, trough dances, talks, games etc. In one sentence: A “Make me smile” – adventure where everyone participates in creating that Smile Paradise!
