10 Years of Tanztreffen der Jugend

“Dance promotes creativity, needs endurance and discipline, is joy in movement, can be pure happiness. For ten years now, the Tanztreffen der Jugend has been offering young talents the opportunity to live all this out. I congratulate them warmly! And wish all participants a week full of inspiration and artistic exchange.”

Dr Johanna Börsch-Supan, Head of Department 3 - Education and Training; Lifelong Learning, Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

About Tanztreffen der Jugend

Tanztreffen der Jugend looks for pieces by young dance ensembles in schools, from structures or groups linked to the indie or professional (dance) theatre scene, who alone or under professional guidance find their own themes and express them in an artistic form using contemporary choreographies.

The Tanztreffen der Jugend is part of the Treffen junge Szene of the Berliner Festspiele and is funded as a national contest by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
