For a career afterwards

When dancers end their active careers, they then take the skills they attained over many years and enter a society that places more and more value on creativity, spontaneity, discipline and endurance. These are dancers who get involved by formulating what moves us, who learned how to express themselves – and who practiced communication in their art as an essential part of our human identity. This potential should not be wasted. Let us support them with all our energy. And let us get involved to support our dancers in order to support our society.
John Neumeier, Director of the Board of Trustees

En route to transition

In contrast to other professional groups, dancers have to orient themselves professionally (transition) after a relatively short active stage run. Often at an age when other professions are only properly started. Thus, during and at the end of the career, doubt, uncertainty, great emptiness and many questions determine the dancer's life.

Health management and accidents at work
13. - 14.09.2020 or 07. - 08.02.2021

Prevention and health management are now indispensable for a good working environment, personnel development, and success of an ensemble.

According to the WHO, health is a state of complete physical, mental- and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO). In the 21st century, the definition of health is extended from the lack of disease to a more inclusive term. We know from numerous scientific studies that the overall work efficiency within an organization and the success of a company depends very much on the health of the employees. The public health service is not always sufficient to target the most important aspects of work-related health problems, especially in case of jobs that have some unusual characteristics, for example, jobs in the performing art sector.

In-house approach of health management has several advantages: it has faster and more stable results, it can flawlessly connect to the existing business and artistic structures and can contribute to a non-toxic working environment and as such, to the nurture of creativity, tolerance, and inclusion. Artistic institutions of our times are expected not only to present art and artists but also, to take care of them and of all other employees. This is not only a question of working ethics and financial rationality but has an important message to society since artistic institutions shape the public view on many socially relevant questions.
