Vademecum Dance - A Guide For The Career Start In German State And Municipal Theatre Companies | DIS-TANZ-START Webinar

4. Dez. 2023

As part of DIS-TANZ-START, the Dachverband Tanz is offering free webinars (online) for dancers in the career entry phase until the end of the year.

04.12.23 | 19:00 - 20:30 Uhr


with Dr. Christiane Theobald

The German theatre system offers diverse structures; rights, duties and responsibilities go hand in hand with the contract as an ensemble member. The guide can provide orientation for joining a dance or ballet company in a state or municipal theatre after professional training. Many questions arise, situations that one is not yet familiar with from studies, quickly overwhelm or tie up too much attention. This can be avoided if a "Vademecum Dance" can provide answers to the questions or help for self-help. Challenges can be mastered reliably. The advantage: the Vademecum Dance can always be updated, because with changing times and structural changes, the questions posed also change. The Vademecum Dance looks at the topics as a multi-perspective guide. The more questions the participants ask, the more precise the guide will offer orientation. We therefore encourage you to participate actively. Your questions might also be those of your colleagues. Please send your questions prior the webinar to
