Bruges' best night. Benenwerk 'Ballroom Brugeoise' challenges you to show your best dancing moves every August. 11 dance floors spread out over the entire medieval centre of Bruges, live bands and DJ's taking you along for a fabulous night of swinging and shaking on the most diverse genres of music.
Succumb yourself in the vintage retro atmosphere of the Modern Stage, where lindy hop and swing own the tent. Or are you more into worldwide beats at the Clubbing Stage? Do you want to go full disco, then get your free dose of disco inferno at the Disco Stage. A sensual tango as an excuse for a passionate embrace. Dancing on your own at the Silent Disco, or do you prefer going hot & sweaty on the tropical Latino Stage? Glitters, feathers and sexy showgirls bringing retro entertainment and burlesque performance, if you are into that ... Benenwerk is the party where truly everyone will find his cup of tea.
For those who think their dance moves have rusted: don't get your knickers in a twist! In many ballrooms and stages, specific dance initiations will be organized beforehand to prepare you for the real party.
Benenwerk is a co-production between the city of Bruges and Stricto Tempo vzw i.c.w. Cactus Muziekcentrum vzw.
