The ‘dancing plague’ that once swept Europe in the 1600s is coming to Copenhagen to kick off the epidemic once again. The event aims to follow in the footsteps of Frau Troffea, who in 1518 influenced 400 people to dance for weeks. The evening will be an open event offering great music, participation from international dancers and even a bar for those wallflowers that may need a little more encouragement to join in the fun.
