  • Dance Group Blue Stars


    Since I was a little girl, I danced everywhere I heard music. Dancing was and is still an important thing in my life! I had the chance to be part of some dancegroups where I made my experiences. I also had my first danceduo and some dance-courses at school where I invented some choreographies. It was a great feeling to see people dance my choreographies. But it was also a very exciting time when I was part of other dancegroups. I enjoyed it very much and I don’t regret any minute of it.

    But now, I decided to create my own dancegroup.
    And that was the beginning of "Dancegroup BLUE STARS"!

    I hope you will enjoy our shows, because the greatest gift a dancer can have, is to see the crowd having fun during the show.

    My dream became true!!!

    P.S.: I want to thank my husband, my family and my friends who always stood behind me during the planing and founding of my own dancegroup!

    Thank you all!


    For reservations: (+352) 691 / 78 56 46

  • Patton Oswalt: 'Big Fan' Of Comics, Not Sports

    In Big Fan, comedian Patton Oswalt plays a huge New York Giants fan. The problem is, he doesn't exactly root for a team on Sunday in real life. So in his exclusive chat with PopEater, he summed up how he got into character: "Basically I had to draw on my geeky love for comics. It's the same spark, just different fuel."

    Big Fan has been riding a wave of buzz since its Sundance Film Festival debut - even drawing implications of a Golden Globe or Oscar nod. "I honestly don't know what to do when you're nominated. I'm assuming they send a car for you, and you go to some parties.

    "I'd be really happy if the movie got nominated... It would be good to see that happen knowing how hard Robert [Siegel] worked on this film."

    But playing a New York Giants fanatic isn't the only thing Patton is up to. "I just signed on as a regular to 'Caprica,' which is a prequel to 'Battlestar Galactica.' I'm also a regular on 'United States of Tara' and have a pretty good role in 'The Informant,' a movie Steven Soderbergh directed. In the meantime, I'll be finishing up my book, and hopefully it will come out next spring... I don't know what it is going to be about yet. It's all random essays, but I might tie it into a narrative. I haven't decided yet. We'll have to wait and see."

    For the entire interview, including Patton's preference between Big Fan and Ratatouille, head on over to PopEater!
