HHGC is an innovative dance event which has been specifically designed to create connection between Battle and choreographic performance. Improvisation is the core principle of HHGC. It enables dancers to push their limits, to reveal new facets of their potential and to experiment art transdiciplinarity. On stage, four teams of dancers compete in a series of judged events or trials attended by many special guests.

 

The HHGc DENMARK winning team will be selected to the HHGc International Final which will take place on the 25th of November 2017 in Lille, and will meet teams from France, La Réunion and Holland…
