Transition

In contrast to other careers, dancers must re-orient themselves after a relatively short active working period (transition). This often takes place at an age at which other careers are just beginning to take off.
So, the life of a dancer is often dominated by doubts, insecurity, a great void and many questions during and at the end of a career. What will happen afterwards? Who will help through the jungle of institutions, paragraphs and guidelines? Where can one receive advice, support, mentoring, confidence-building and sensitization for a successful transition process?
We accompany and support dancers from the beginning of their education through every stage of their career up until the conclusion of their process of transition. We are open for all professional dancers, whether they are employed or freelance, at city theaters, state theaters, musical theaters, in film or on TV.
