The TanzTangente was founded in 1981 by Leanore Ickstadt, Irene Sieben and Joanne Pateas (all of them former dancers and students of Mary Wigman). It is therefore one of the oldest and longest-established schools for contemporary dance in Berlin. The head of TanzTangente are Nadja Raszewski and Daniela Grosset.
We teach children, teenagers and adult people in different dance styles and initiate projects in schools and with people with different social, cultural and physical conditions.
The aim of our work is to bring movement into artistic thinking, acting and into social behavior, in a funny, intelligent, unconventional and socially relevant way.
