Between 7th to 13th of August, Københavns Politigård will turn into a dance mecka! If dancing is your type of culture, head down to Polititorvet 1 this week.

The event, that’s called Copenhagen Summer Dance, is arranged by the Danish Dance Theatre. It’s a week of open air dance, where companies and choreographers get to present their view of contemporary dance. This annual event takes place at the headquarters of the Copenhagen Police, located in the middle of the city center. The venue is otherwise never open to the public, so it’s the perfect occasion to see what it looks like in there too. If you get thirsty from watching everyone dance, drinks and food can be purchased inside. Each show starts at 20.30 / 8.30PM. The entrance is completely free, so what are you waiting for?
