DANCE CLUB is a collaboration between Nikhil Shah (Mixcloud, ManMakeMusic) and Mariana Marquez + Emma Zangs (Marquez&Zangs). The format is a DJ set with “guided” rather than “taught” dance instruction.
DANCE CLUB pushes the boundaries of what you typically hear in club sets whilst encouraging you to explore the way you dance and move.
DANCE CLUB takes place in spaces that lend themselves to creativity and self expression. We create an environment that is trusting and non-judgmental, allowing you to express yourself without feeling self-conscious.
We have invited 2 leading dancers and choreographers to join us for this Dance Club. Through a combination of performing, teaching and participating on the dancefloor, our guests will help you explore new dance styles, expand your movement and ultimately bridge the gap between performer and spectator.

After graduating from the Opera de Paris Ballet School, and The Palucca Hochschule in Dresden, Ulysse got invited to be part of the new Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company (ex-Forsythe Company).
