Annual Transition Group 2018
Munich, Düsseldorf, Berlin, Leipzig

For dancers who are currently in the process of transitioning + would like to be part of a group to accompany them for this time. This group will deal with all questions that arise in the transitional period: detachment from active dance, coping with grief, recognition of further potential, decision-making for a new path, implementation of a concrete idea. At each meeting, there will be a group theme and time for the personal cause. The companionship of the group is supportive and encouraging.
The idea for this annual group comes from our French colleagues, who have been doing this format for years in Paris. We offered them as pilot groups in 2017 in Munich, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Berlin, and the participating dancers benefited consistently.
