"WORK it OUT"

ERIH'S ANNUAL DANCE EVENT FOR MEMBER SITES

Our dance event "WORK it OUT" premiered in 2018 as ERIH's main contribution to the European Year of Cultural Heritage. Due to its success and popularity, it has since become an annual event.

The event is aimed primarily at young people (children, teenagers and young adults from school classes, sports clubs, dance and fitness studios...) who can consciously experience industrial culture and its sites and discover their significance for their own past, their relevance for the present and their potential for the future. Of course, the young at heart of all ages who want to get moving can also take part.

All over Europe, on the day of the event at 3 pm, dancing will take place in front of, in and even on imposing industrial sites, making industrial heritage an attractive place to experience.

The easy-to-learn 'WORK it Out' dance can be practised in advance using a You Tube tutorial. The music, which includes elements of Beethoven's European anthem 'Ode to Joy' in electronic dance style or as a rap version, is newly composed each year, as is the specially developed choreography, which translates the hand movements and gestures of work from the past into modern movements.

Photos and videos will be taken during the training and, of course, during the performance, and posted using our hashtag #erihworkitout.
