Line Dance Festival
9 to 11 September 2022
From the 9th to the 11th of September 2022, St. Anton am Arlberg will turn for the fifth time into a large dance floor for Line Dancer. Dance enthusiasts from near and far prove their sense of rhythm with their stirring sounds and celebrate together what makes the line dance special: pure joy of life.
It´s time for the Line Dance Festival when good-humored people with cowboy hats and Western boots shape the townscape of St. Anton am Arlberg for a weekend. The well-known Festival will run from Friday, September 9 to Sunday, September 11, 2022. The participants do not have to strive for a fixed dance partner, because the line dance lives on its reputation as a group dance in lines next to and behind each other. The musical repertoire ranges from country to pop to rock'n'roll. "Line dance knows no age limit and connects people all over the world," explains Joe Thöni of the association Linedance Landeck, who set up the event together with the Tourist Board St. Anton am Arlberg. "We would like to invite all Line Dance fans whether they are 5 or 85 years old - and those who want to experience the unique atmosphere in St. Anton am Arlberg," says the initiator.
Together to the World Record
The first successful world record attempt in 2010 triggered a real line dance boom in the famous tourist resort. And the enthusiasm continues to this day. Because this time, too, the participants will face the challenge of mastering 20 dances in one hour according to a strictly prescribed choreography. What is new is that the world record should not be set by having as many participants as possible, but by performing 20 new dances.
3 days of Country-Feeling
It starts with the warm-up on Friday: Cozy get-togethers and feelgood music from a DJ guarantee a successful start to the festival. On Saturday afternoon, in addition to the special snake line dance through St. Anton am Arlberg, guests can also look forward to the men's dance and live performances in the evening. It gets serious on Sunday when the numerous line dance groups present, after a festive procession through the town center, dare to attempt the world record in the Arlberg WellCom World Cup hall.
