Information about the Preliminary Meetings and following steps


Program of the internationale tanzmesse nrw

The program of internationale tanzmesse nrw has already been published at



Insofar you are funded through DTD within the project "Tanz aus Deutschland", you must have received an Email with an URL with which you can register yourself. After the process of registration, there is the opportunity to book Tickets for performances at the internationale tanzmesse nrw. This will be possible from the 1st of June 2022 on. | Update: DTD had closed the accreditation process.

Attention: There have been Pishing Mails sent, that are neither form internationale tanzmesse nor form DTD. Please be aware and always double check, if an E-Mail from the Tanzmesse nrw looks trustable. The German Dance Association will not send you e-mails asking you to pay a lot of money to be on whatever kind of perticipation list.


Area of DTD and the cooperation partners ( = Dance Update Germany Area)

The Area of the DTD and the cooperating partners is located on the ground floor in the building. The booth-number will be announced soon (as of today it looks like we will have number 45).


Video/Trailer material

Throughout the project of funded artists, there can be video material submitted until 30th June 2022 to present information of your work at the booth and to give professional audience insights with videos hosted on a local webiste. 

Please send the material to: tanz-aus-deutschland(at)

Please have a look to our guidelines before submitting the material: Guideline for requirements of the Video Material


Hotel / Accomodation in Düsseldorf

Funded artists who don´t have a privat accomodation possibility can reach out to us. The DTD has reserved rooms at Motel One Düsseldorf Hbf (79,00 Euro per Night per Person). We will send you a formular in order to make the reservation. First come, first served. Deadline was 19th July 2022 | no rooms availlable anymore!


In case you are getting sick!?

If you can't attend the internationale tanzmesse please try to cancel all you reservations yourself (e.g. hotel / train tickets) and write the team of the German Dance Association an e-mail, so we know you can't come. Thanks and get well soon!


Travel expanse invoice after the visit at internationale tanzmesse nrw

Funded artists can submit an invoice after the visit at the internationale tanzmesse nrw. The Bundesreisekostengesetz applies in that case.

You can find the formular of the travel expanse invoice here as Excel and PDF. We also send it to you via e-email.

Please submit original receipts. Tickets must be stamped. For digital tickets, proof of payment must also be submitted as a receipt (bank account statement for the transaction).

Overnight stays in Airbnb apartments are possible. However, sponsored persons must note that they must submit complete invoice receipts for this, including the "VAT invoice" (can be accessed via a link on the invoice receipt), so that the costs can be recognized. Proof of payment for Airbnb is also necessary (PayPal or similar).

2 grantees stayed together in an Airbnb. How is this accounted for?

It is the easiest, if one person settles and names the second person on the RKA form. The second person should note on their RKA form where the person slept and who laid out the accommodation costs.


Evaluation / Final meeting after the Tanzmesse

We will invite funded artists to join a final Zoom-Session via e-mail to share experiences. Your feedback is important for us and we appriciate your time and effort. It helps us to develope better funding programs.
