Dance season on Střelecký Island is here!
Střelecký Island (‘Střelecký ostrov’ or simply ‘Střelák’ to the locals) in the heart of Prague not only offers scenic views of Charles Bridge and Prague Castle, and romantic walks in the shade of mature trees, but has also become a place for free outdoor public dancing in recent years.
Many dance programmes and workshops take place on a pontoon that has been anchored to the island for several years, offering an additional stage and dance floor.
Dancing is a pleasant social activity, as well as a manifestation of emotions. It is an art form, which brings the pleasure of moving to music to everyone, both spectators and dancers, whether they dance alone, in pairs or in groups.
