Copy & Dance is a dance floor and a screen on which dance scenes from videos and films from the last 34 years are projected and copied ad hoc by everyone present. Those who want Gangnamstyle will be disappointed, those longing for the Backstreet Boys can hope, those wanting The Time of my Life can have it - without Patrick Swayze but with themselves and the others. Led by MC Tina and VJ Anna there will be dancing – and namely together – copying dance scene classics, music video highlights, the best of today and unknowns from all over the world or right round the corner. Jane Fonda will definitely be there. We dance, because it makes us happy. "Let's dance like we used to..."
