“A Dance to Remember” is a benefit dance gala for the SYNAPSIS Foundation for the promotion of Alzheimer research in Switzerland. Dance professionals from all over the world will perform, they come from the Ballett Theater Basel, La Scala/Milan and the Ballett Boston. The Swingdancer Basel Jitterbugs will end the charity evening with their performance and then invite you to a dance party. The idea for “A Dance to Remember” arose from the journey of memories about synapses, dreams and ideas that emerge daily in our world of thought. Memories, dreams and thoughts are therefore also the core themes of the pieces, which will be performed in the evening and make reference to Alzheimer’s disease. The event also aims to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and provide insight into current advances in research and possible developments in therapies. We are therefore pleased to welcome Mrs. Margrit Leuthold, President of the SYNAPSIS Foundation, as a guest. All proceeds from the event will go to the SYNAPSIS Foundation to support its mission.

Saturdays again and again…:
From the beginning of November to the end of February you can enjoy a few wonderful hours of good food and selected wines illuminated by candlelight.
When it gets dark outside, the snowflakes dance in front of the windows or the rain pours down on the panes, we take you into a piece of the perfect world.
With the right live music from the piano… it will be really cosy. – 18 to 23 o’clock
