a dance academy camp

@Iwanson Contemporary Dance


SOLID GROUND trains and educates creating important contacts to the international professional dance scene for dance and choreography students before their graduation year. The program serves as an orientation for the future international working environment even before the students’ dance formation is completed. It is also a unique occasion to personally network among fellow students from all over Europe. This summer SOLID GROUND takes place for the forth time and during the first half of TANZWERKSTATT EUROPA.

The participants meet (inter-)national specialists from the various working realities in the field of contemporary dance and performance. They learn about artistic scenes, current developments, (inter-)national production contexts, funding opportunities, but also the basics of production planning and guest performance organization.

International choreographers, artists, and teachers, who can already look back on several years of work experience, work artistically with the participants in different choreographic labs.
