The Movimentos Academy provides a sustainable offer to children, young adults and adults which encourages them to know and nurture their own creativity. Participants are given the freedom and inspiration to find their own form of expression. The Academy has become an important constant in the nurturance of young talent in the area. Cultural institutions in the region such as the Tanzende Theater Wolfsburg, the Theater Wolfsburg and the Staatstheater Braunschweig support the Movimentos Academy in its work. An exchange with cultural institutions nationwide is also an important factor.
Since 2004 the performances given by the Movimentos Academy have enriched the annual Festival Weeks. In fact since 2008 it has become traditional for the Festival to open with a performance by the Academy. Since 2011 there has been another innovation: following the model of an arts college, young Academy participants have had an opportunity of familiarizing themselves with disciplines such as dance, music, costume- and fashion design, acting, dramaturgy and make-up.
The workshop offer is extended to beginners as well as to advanced students. All workshop instructors have professional qualifications. In order for participants to take part in both individual courses and long-term projects, the offers are split into basic workshops and project classes. The goal of the workshops is to give participants a realistic insight into the creative professions. Performances take place all year round.
