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

Information via Telephone and Mail

We are here to answer your questions about a career re-orientation. We give you tips and support for your first steps, and we offer information about funding and grant possibilities. The counseling is confidential.

Individual support

We offer you personal counseling to talk about developing a career perspective for the future. Dr. Carolin Eckert, Diplom-psychologist, is available for individual coaching. She accompanies the respective dancer’s individual transition process in discussions. This involves clarifying the existing emotional situation as well as personal interests, competencies and goals. A strengths/weaknesses analysis can be made. Together a concrete time and budget plan is created for a career re-orientation. The counseling is confidential. Please book an appointment or a skype-meeting via e-mail.

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.
