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.
