Take-off: Junger Tanz

Partnering schools open doors to the dance world.


In schools, Take-Off: Junger Tanz opens a door onto the world: Here, every participating pupil discovers their own capacities with the means of the art of dance. Collaborating with dance educators, dancers and choreographers, the pupils learn about different dance styles and work methods. This seeks to foster an intellectual as well as physical debate on the performances experienced, because heads hot in thought and aching muscles serve equally well to open new perspectives for all involved.

Dance as a school subject

Take-Off: Junger Tanz currently collaborates with 13 partnering Düsseldorf schools. These co-operations are either integrated into the curriculum as weekly school subjects or take place as special extracurricular projects. During the classes, the pupils gain insight into the professional choreographers’ artistic processes, discuss prevailing positions within contemporary dance for a young audience, and develop their very own movement practice. The pupils present the results of this work on tanzhaus nrw’s grand stage during “Take-Off: Show off” at the end of the school year.
