tanz raum’s international dance meeting for dance, rhythm, yoga, and music from Egypt with special guests from abroad

an ideal opportunity to work with Caroline Chevat and Claudia Heinle, unique artists in their field, as well as guest artists, who enrich the week with their music, dance, and knowledge. 


curriculum - creation of my own dance piece

This year we take you on a journey to the universe of dance and creation. You will create your proper dance solo. We will find out what helps, in the process of creation, what is hindering, and how we can overcome obstacles to get into a flow state. During the week, the teaching artists, the other dancers, and musicians will support you generously and on different levels in this process. On the last day, we will perform and celebrate the work.
