network

The Network Dance represents the interests of the dancers in the ballet and dance ensembles in Germany. The structure for this is still in developement. The conferences of the Network Dance contribute to the regular exchange between the ensembles.

It is the aim that dancers in the ensembles become self confident co-authors of their artistic work. Their working conditions should support this, enabling them to fully develop their creative and physical potential in order to serve each ensemble’s artistic establishment.

These goals are to be achieved by a continuous dialogue with the Federal German Ballet and Dance Theater Directorate, unions, the German stage association as well as other associations such as 'Tanzmedizin Deutschland', 'Stiftung Tanz' and 'Dachverband Tanz Deutschland'.
