TANZFONDS PARTNER funds the cooperation of one dance institution – company, dance venues or choreographic centre – and one school. Such a format will forge particularly close links between the partners involved. The partners will ideally create a co-operative alliance that will continue once the initial funding period has ended.
Aim of the founding is to integrate dance into the partner schools over the long terms. So it will become a natural part of everyday life at the schools beside other art forms.
