Rooted in Culture

Rooted in Culture

The culture is essential for the House and Club scene. House culture is rooted in black history, LGBTQI+ community, underground clubs and freedom of expression. During Rooted in Culture we present club culture through movement, education and inspiration. In this program we bring you food for thought and liberation of the body in collaboration with the Dutch Housedance Community, Steppin Into Tomorrow and Lynnee Denise.

Get inspired during the Housedance workshop guided by Zev, who is one of the early clubheads in the Netherlands. While Lynnee Denise and Steppin Into Tomorrow take you on their journey through the history of House and Disco with video and audio samples. After the lecture by Lynnee Denise and Steppin Into Tomorrow we bring back the vibes back to the dancefloor. DJ collective Chill on Tuesday and Chocolate Brown will go deep with a back to back session. Rooted in Culture will get you moving in different forms!
