How did youngsters dance in the past? What do we remember about dreams, wishes, desires, rebellion of these dancing bodies? Do we dance today (only) for fun, or is there something more to our dance? 

We looked into different youth subcultures throughout the 20th century that embodied - through music and dance - their ideas of how the world should look like. Teen Spirit is the result of the three weeks we spent together dancing, learning, having fun, discussing and imagining these dances anew.
