Knowledge exchange and qualification

In cooperation with its members and other partners, the German Dance Association promotes and develops information and consulting services for dance-creating artists.

Here you will find an overview of current workshops and training opportunities in which the German Dance Association is involved as an organizer:



Expert meetings "InfoPlus" for producers

As a continuous exchange of information between regional dance offices, local networks and cultural producers, the InfoPlus format supports the contact persons for dance professionals through exchange of experience, qualification, joint research and common information tools. Information on current events can be found on the page of the project Kreativ-Transfer.


Round tables and working groups

The German Dance Association initiates and/or supports the following events:


Runder Tisch Tanzförderung

Runder Tisch Tanzmedizin

Runder Tisch Tanzarchive und Tanzsammlungen

Arbeitskreis Tanzförderung Stadt-Land-Bund



As an essential part of the funding program DIS-TANZEN, the goal is to make "new forms of artistic and dance-pedagogical or dance-mediating work, which strengthen the resilience of individual actors in the future and can act as innovative examples and models for the entire dance scene" sustainably visible and to actively communicate these examples. A digital platform will be created for this purpose. Together with dance offices, dance networks and the associations of dance artists and dance schools, newly found ways of working will be collected, discussed with dance professionals and communicated.  

This moment of qualification should enable the dance artists and dance schools to reach a new level of artistic and pedagogical work with the supported projects. Resilience can be achieved to a large extent through qualification and reflection on one's own professional work. Therefore, qualification programs are developed together with associations, universities and experts. Initially, pilot workshops will be held to kick off the qualification program. The first of these is the workshop "Leadership and Leadership Competence", which was developed in cooperation with the German Ballet and Dance Theater Directors Conference (BBTK) for ballet directors and future dance leaders. Further information on the planned qualification formats will be published here shortly.
