DYNAMO – the dance platform for young people NRW 

Free admission

Cancellation of DYNAMO - Junge Tanzplattform NRW 2021 as a presence event in Essen

To our great regret, ›DYNAMO‹, the dance platform for young people organised by the nrw landesbuero tanz, which this year had invited sixteen children's and youth dance ensembles from all over North Rhine-Westphalia to take part from the 08. – 11. December in live stage presentations, workshops and exchange formats in Essen, has had to be cancelled as a presence event. Having thoroughly examined all available options, we, in our capacity as both a cooperation partner and venue, are reacting with this cancellation to the progressively critical pandemic situation in our area and the regulations, social responsibilities and duties of care this brings with it: »The decision was extremely difficult for us to take. We know how much commitment has gone into the festival on all sides and how very excited the participants were at the prospect of coming together.«
 
The planned online workshops will take place as normal. In addition to these, the landesbuero team is currently developing decentralized workshop formats to get the participating children and young people dancing again in small groups towards the end of the year!

How to share my power?! Empowerment oriented youth work
10:00 - 12:00 h via Zoom

Central to empowerment are safe spaces in which experiences of discrimination and emancipation can be openly articulated and exchanged and where practices of active resistance are facilitated and supported.

In this impulse workshop we’ll approach key facets of empowerment, talk about how we can learn through self-reflection to be more sensitive to experiences of discrimination and look at how empowerment of, and for, children and young people can be implemented and supported in educational practice.

The workshop is aimed at dance facilitators, specialists working in schools and education and other interested parties.

With Filiz Şirin, educational consultant at the FUMA Gender & Diversity Office NRW (https://www.gender-nrw.de/)

Online participation via Zoom is free of charge. The number of participants is limited.

Registration is required by 27.11.2021: tanzvermittlung@landesbuerotanz.de

Online-Workshop
›Empowering Dance – Soft Skills in dance mediation‹

Dancing empowers - but what feelings does this trigger? Perhaps simply the joy of physical movement or possibly more when we meet regularly, train and develop choreographies together or bring others to dance? What kinds of skills or forms of knowledge are inherent in contemporary dance practices that even dance practitioners themselves are not always aware of? What skills can dance practitioners implicitly deepen by dancing together?

For the first time in contemporary dance, the European project Empowering Dance - Developing Soft Skills has set out to explore the connection between dance and the development of soft skills. The workshop reveals implicit forms of knowledge and enables a reflective approach to, and practical application of, social skills in one's own dance practice.

The workshop is aimed at dance facilitators, specialists working in schools and education and other interested parties.

With: Dr. Kerstin Evert, Director K3 - Center for Choreography I Tanzplan Hamburg,Patricia Carolin Mai, choreographer and dance mediator
