Welcome to the 30 zone!


The first Steps dance festival took place in spring 1988. Over the course of 30 years, this biennial has presented selected international troupes, together with representatives of the Swiss dance scene, in a three-week intercity festival, all throughout the country.


The 30th anniversary of Steps represents 30 years of work, setting up 16 editions of the festival.
We are not shouting from the rooftops about our anniversary – we are celebrating it by realising another special edition, with dedication and passion.


Here in this zone on our website, you will find information about the past and future of the festival. We believe it is worth your while to surf through this unhurriedly (30 zone!) and to learn more about the meaning and purpose of the festival. We have prepared pictures, impressions, texts and videos from, on, before, behind and between the Steps stages all over Switzerland. Discover facts, figures, thoughts and anecdotes from the festival's 30 years of existence. Enjoy surfing! Keep coming back to this zone, because we are continually expanding it, adding interesting information, along with the amusing and unforgettable! Stay up to date: we regularly announce new additions in social media.
