The International Guest Performance Fund for Dance is to promote the exchange between artists working in Germany and international organizers and to create incentives for a stronger rotation of existing and new productions.
Within the framework of the Coproduction Fund for Dance, the creation of new dance productions is supported. The origin of the artists is not crucial, but the production must be realized mainly in Germany.

JOINT ADVENTURES within the framework of NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ, Dachverband Tanz Deutschland e.V. and the non-profit cultural organisation Diehl+Ritter, with their jointly developed and coordinated federal dance funding program, are part of “NEUSTART KULTUR” of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media (BKM).
The concept includes the implementation of three components: NPN-STEPPING OUT to promote the development, production and distribution of dance in new areas. DIS-TANZEN – a sholarship program for solo self-employed dancers and an impulse support model for dance schools and dance education in cultural institutions. TANZPAKT RECONNECT – this program strengthens and secures the future of dance structures.
NPN-STEPPING OUT, the new funding programme within the framework of the NATIONAL PERFORMANCE NETWORK, opens up the non-theatrical, analogue, media and digital public space, as well as performative scene areas and fields of action that are still to be thought of or found.
The Assistence Program for Dance is part of „NEUSTART KULTUR“, an initiative of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
