Detour Urban Dance Festival Wants More B-Girls

Get the lowdown on what you can experience at this year's Detour, including the female B-girl workshop, aimed to increase the number of female B-girls in Denmark.

Founded in 2012 and organised solely by Sara Jordan since day-one, Detour Urban Dance Festival runs over several days from September 13-16 and is a celebration of the urban dance environment and dedicated to inspiring new audiences to the scene. With her long history as a choreographer, Sara Jordan is acutely aware of the, let’s call them, gaps in the culture. Noticing a distinct lack of female B-girls in Denmark, she has set out to change that at this year’s festival by bringing in a handful of international role models to host a workshop for girls and women interested in learning about the genre. Learn more about that workshop on the Detour site.
