Promoting creativity and developing talent in dance projects

As a sustainable project for children and teens, the Movimentos Academy encourages them to recognize and develop their creativity. The objective is to offer participants free space and inspiration to explore new forms of expression.

Movimentos Academy projects

In the Movimentos Academy dance class, young performers between the ages of eight and nineteen develop their own dance production over a period of seven months. Dancers between the ages of 16 and 36 also have the opportunity to take part in the Movimentos Academy "tanzwärts" project and develop a choreography in an intensive five-week rehearsal phase at the Staatstheater Braunschweig.

The Movimentos Academy is a sustainable programme for children and young adults that encourages them to recognize and develop their own creativity.

The 8- to 19-year-old Academy students in the dance class work on their own production under the direction of choreographer Daniel Martins and dance instructor Sonja Böhme.


The "Movimentos Akademie tanzwärts" project is a continuation of the Movimentos Academy master class under the direction of Gregor Zöllig. Together with his team, dancers aged 16 to 36 develop a choreography over an intensive five-week rehearsal phase.

Movimentos Academy partners

The work of the Movimentos Academy is supported by regional cultural institutions including the Tanzende Theater Wolfsburg, Staatstheater Braunschweig and Scharoun Theater Wolfsburg.
