Together with the Department of Arts and Culture of the City of Munich, every year since 1991 JOINT ADVENTURES has organized TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA – a workshop for new ideas and aesthetics in contemporary dance and performance and hot spot for choreographers, teachers and professionals – for all people who take great delight in dancing. The audience comes from Munich, Bavaria and the whole world.


This summer you can not only discover a wide range of contemporary dance techniques for 10 or 5 days, but also: gain insights into current artistic working methods; try out your own choreographic material and share it with participants from all over the world; experience and expand the possibilities of your body anew in partnering classes; do something good for your body with Feldenkrais, Pilates, Yoga or Tai-Chi Dao-Yin; dance your heart out in various repertory and partnering classes; dive into the world of contemporary dance and contact improvisation with dancers of different physical abilities; develop your skills in urban dance; train ballet in a new, contemporary way or free yourself with voguing.

The workshops are offered in different levels, so there is something for everyone – whether you are a professional dancer, performer, student, long-time hobby dancer or a dance-loving beginner!
