Tanztreffen der Jugend

Berliner Festpiele  

17 – 24 Sep 2021Young dance


Aside from the public performances, the interaction of groups is equally, if not more, important. The Campus, which is especially conceived for this purpose, offers many opportunities for this in various workshops, performance talks and discussions. In addition, a blog will be set up to comment on the festival goings-on. Other national contests at the Berliner Festspiele will complement the programme with texts and music.

The Forum of Tanztreffen der Jugend has an exchange programme aimed at dance teachers. It consists of impulse and intensive workshops as well as discursive formats for performance talks and/or thematic focal points. The main aim of the Forum is to provide opportunities for collegial exchange.
