About us

The new Dance Office in Chemnitz will be a center for coordinating dance events, a place to meet like-minded dance enthusiasts from the Chemnitz region as well as an information hub, where those interested can find details about dance lessons of all kinds, current dance projects and upcoming performances.
The Dance Office aims to create a network of various dance-initiatives and will be responsible for organizing talks, coordinating dance projects in public and urban spaces and will oversee the international dance festival TANZ|MODERNE|TANZ, among other projects. The Dance Office was initiated by the newly founded association for contemporary dance: TANZ|MODERNE|TANZ e.V.
