Further information will be available shortly. We'll keep you all informed. In order for you to get the information please send your email address to

The following text still refers to the Dance Intensive planned before Corona, but gives an impression of the content and structure:

The Tanzfabrik Berlin is offering a ten-month Dance Intensive program for all those who would like to get more deeply involved into contemporary dance. Dance Intensive is a qualification program aimed at people who want to orient themselves in dance, further their dance training and/or prepare for auditions at various higher education programs and schools.

Participants will have the chance to get more closely acquainted with the dance sector and gain insight into the various dance styles and genres. In this way, students can, among other things, lay the foundation for entering higher dance education directly, to prepare themselves for auditions at different institutions and schools.

The program is conceived as to provide every participant individual attention and care, to strengthen their creative potential, so that they may successfully continue their dance education at the higher-level institutions. The program’s goal is to lay the fundamentals by teaching a wide range of styles and techniques while also working on the integrity of body, form, alignment, dynamics and musicality.

The program is made up of 6 dance intensive classes per week. These classes are obligatory and exclusively reserved for the participants of the Dance Intensive course. The main focus of the program is contemporary dance. Additional classes are contemporary ballet, improvisation, composition, body work, applied anatomy as well as theory. In addition, the participants can attend all classes within the regular ‘Tanzfabrik-Kursprogramm’. After an initial information and orientation period, every participant will have his/her individual schedule. The classes offer range from Contemporary, Contemporary Ballet, Contact Improvisation, Gaga, Dynamic Improvisation, Movement Research, Dynamic Expansion, Axis Syllabus, African Dance, Contemporary Jazz, Streetdance, Yoga, Body-Mind Centering, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Butoh, Urban Flow. The participants will be able to work and present their own work as well as being part of group projects which will be led by teachers of the program. The Dance Intensive-Program ends with a public showing on our studio stage.

All participants will also be given full support in putting together their CVs and application for dance schools and colleges.

Events and performances at the Tanzfabrik are free of charge during the program.
