Four consecutive days, more than 8 hours of class!

Ringo, born in 1963 in Brooklyn, is the second generation of Rock dancers. He grew up in places and atmospheres that made Hip Hop emerge from the New York ghettos. Mastering all the codes of Rocking and knowing the foundations of the Hip Hop culture, he has, in addition to a perfect technical transmission of the dance, a multitude of historical anecdotes to tell us to better make us grasp the context of emergence of this culture and the stakes of the time.

In our desire to develop dance knowledge in Geneva, Ringo, the godfather of the Summer Break, will once again benefit from all its expertise and international fame during the Festival in order to transmit to us the essence of Rocking in his mind and his codes

Health & Wellness

Our vision of the Break does not end there. This discipline, which is very demanding in terms of effort, also requires considering the aspect of physical recovery and the musculo-articular pathologies that can develop there. Our new center of activity has the ambition to bring both preventive and curative elements for the health of dancers.

A team of physiotherapy students led by one of their teachers takes care of the free management of dancers through sports massage.
