Tanzhologie® - A teaching method for health promotion through dance

Dance has a positive and health-promoting influence on people in many ways. Each style of dance sets priorities and trains very specific movement qualities.

Content and learning objectives

Tanzhology takes up elements from the most diverse dance disciplines that contribute to health promotion and personality development and makes them available to people of all ages. It consists of 10 fixed building blocks and includes exercises according to detailed "technical" movement specifications as well as free movement design through improvisation. At the same time, in each teaching unit, an arc is drawn from active dance to relaxation and mental training.

With just a little training effort of just 1.5 hours a week, participants experience a clear, positive influence on their body image and state of mind through Tanzhology within a short time.

This basic workshop includes a lot of movement practice and also provides a theoretical framework for the connections between health and dance from dance science.

Dance teachers receive practical suggestions as to how dance hology or individual elements of the method can be integrated into their own dance pedagogical concept.
