What about pictures and video's?
We ask all participants to leave their phones/camera’s in their accommodation or in their bag on the venue (own risk). This is to create a safe space for all dancers, where the focus will be in the moment, while we are dancing with the sunset. We will have a few slots on the program where some pictures/video’s will be taken as we love to capture the beautiful time we will have, both for your memories as well as for us to share with the world. Your privacy is important to us!
