Dance pedagogy as a field deals with the didactics and methodology for reflection and transmission of the experiences made in dance practice. The aim is to qualify teachers to pass on traditions, methods and dance techniques to future students.
Dachverband Tanz Deutschland promotes high quality in dance education in training and further education, in cultural education as well as in dance with children and young people.
The Federal Association of Dance in Germany (Dachverband Tanz Deutschland) is connected to the topic of cultural education in many ways through its members - be it the dance education associations, the artists' associations or the permanent dance and ballet ensembles at German theaters. In the "Chance Tanz" project, we have joined forces around the initiative of the German Dance Association in schools. With success!
