Workshop with the "Norrdans" company (Sweden). Saturday 23, at 12 noon.

Everyone can take part in a workshop designed for adults and children where you’ll learn basic dance steps, have a fabulous time and even sing a song. In charge of teaching it are the Ngom, a family devoted to maintaining and spreading Senegalese dance, music and culture in general.

Hip-hop masterclass. Saturday 23, Sunday 24 and Monday 25, at 5.30 pm.
The performers in the company run by Arias Fernández, who is also directing a cabaret of new talents in the park, are fine exponents of the new urban dances. Here, they show audiences the secrets of hip-hop, in a masterclass that no one who’s interested in the new forms of the moving arts should miss.

"Dance with your baby in movement
" workshop (Barcelona). Saturday 23, Sunday 24 and Monday 25, at 4.15 pm.
What if you could share the experience of movement and music with your baby? Your bond with them would be bound to be made even closer, whether you’re a mum or a dad. Come and try it out, and with the help of dancer and dance teacher Mónica Monge, you’ll dance easily, both with choreographed material and improvised.

Workshop by the "James Wilton Dance" company (Great Britain). Sunday 24, at 12 noon.
Another of the companies taking part in the international Dancing Partners project gets up on stage to show the people of Barcelona their style in a breathtaking virtuoso performance showing the perfect synchronisation of the dancers. ‘How do they do it?’ you’ll wonder. Don’t worry, they’ll reveal how in a workshop.
