getting interested Accessibility Concepts

We developed and tested these accessibility concepts in the scope of our dance projects. 


They include examples that you can use and adapt for your own purposes in preparing your first lesson.

Accessibility Concepts

Not every student is crazy about dancing right from the start. So how can we bring the world of contemporary dance closer to theirs and introduce them to the topic? In our accessibility concepts, we’ve developed various approaches for a range of age groups. On top of that, we provide tips for films and videos that can establish a connection to the familiar and help to break the ice.

4th – 6th grade

Comic Book Characters and Heroes

How do Batman, Wonderwoman and other idols move, what poses are characteristic for them? For students who think dancing is uncool in the beginning.

Dancing and Sports

A perfect shot in basketball or a phenomenal flip while doing parcours – sequences of movements play a crucial role in the world of sports too. For students who would rather be in gym class than dance class.
