More Info

Schedule is subject to change. All workshops will be held at Tanzstudio Hep Cat Club (Wallstraße 1, 86150 Augsburg).

The studio is located in the center of the city (station: Köngisplatz) and is in walking distance to the main central station (5 minutes). There are many restaurants, shops and hotels in walking distance.

You can park at “Bleigässchen” for the normal price range. On Sunday it is only 1,50 euros for the whole day!

We recommend to stay at the hotel ibis at the central station or at Königsplatz. Both of them are very close to the event location and the price is ok. A very special place to stay is the Grandhotel Cosmopolis ( It’s a hotel and home for refugees at the same time and every room is designed by an artist. They also have the concept „Pay as much as you can“. Another option is the youth hostel. We heard that the breakfast should be very good to!
