WORKSHOPS - Frankfurt

14. > 19. Mai 2019

SOLOCOREOGRAFICO DANCE WORKSHOPS!

>>> Registration for classes and workshops - click here!

> Workshops tickets each 10,- € 

From May 14 to 19, SOLOCOREOGRAFICO - International Solo Dance Festival will take place in Frankfurt am Main with a variety of dance workshops and a show program at the Gallus Theater. At the workshops in the offices of the Amt für multikulturelle Angelegenheiten (AmkA) and the Dance School "Anastasia Dirksen”, dance enthusiasts with and without previous knowledge, can try out different dance styles. The workshops offer a range from contemporary dance and improvisation to urban style and ballet.

The aim of the festival is to network the local, national and international dance scene. Frankfurt is associated with a unique dance tradition, with the international renown of William Forsythe, his successor Jacopo Godani, ID_Frankfurt and the Tanz Platform Rhein Main. The festival is closely linked to Frankfurt's partner city of Lyon (the Festival 1.2.3 SOLI) and Lyon's twin city of Turin - thus strengthening the event format cohesion and partner-like encounter.

The workshops in the AmkA (Mainzer Landstraße 293, Gallus) and the Dance School "Anastasia Dirksen" (Ohmstraße 44, Bockenheim) are designed for dance lovers as well as for dance professionals and dance students. They are offered and directed by dancers of the artistic festival program and by artists from Frankfurt.
