    17.04.2024 | On Site (Berlin) and Live-Streaming | Forum Career Entry in Dance #2

    The expiration of the DIS-TANZ-START and DIS-TANZ SOLO funding programs, which were part of NEUSTART KULTUR, has highlighted the necessity for long-term support for aspiring dancers entering the profession. Professionals from the education sector (art schools), the workplace (ensembles/production), and the dance community (dancers/graduates), along with representatives from nationally active associations and organizations, are convening to exchange perspectives and experiences regarding the challenges of starting a career in dance. The objective is to enhance awareness of the diverse needs and requirements of all stakeholders involved, clarify areas of responsibility, and engage in discussions about innovative ideas, intersections, opportunities for collaboration, and funding possibilities.

How can the promotion of young talent be combined with sustainable ensemble promotion?
