New in 2024 - Longest Moves

If you feel it, you can take part in the 'Longest Moves Competition' between the kids & junior battles. How it works? Quite simply, be there and take part. There are, for example, The Longest Handstand, Most Backspins, Most Handglides, Most Windmills, Most Headspins or other categories, depending on what our participants can do. The competition is led by 'Patrick Grigo', who made it into the Guinness Book of World Records with two entries in 2007 and 2009. Your records will be recorded on video and added to and8.dance's official breaking record database.

Register and be part of it!

Registration is easy with our partner 'and8.dance'. You need an account there and then you can register yourself, your students or even your friends to participate. By the way, there are no entry fees. So participation is free of charge.

We ask that you to 'register online in advance'. That would help us a lot with planning. Of course, last-minute participants can also register on site.

The Location

The event takes place at Trafo Baden, directly in the 'TRAFO MALL'. There is a large parking garage and from the train station 'Baden AG' it is about 300 meters by foot. In the mall itself there are public toilets, a gallery and a kiosk. Public shops (Coop) are around and very close.
