Our goals

 

Holistic health promotion

Dancing is an all-around wonder among sport activities. On the physical level, it promotes coordination, endurance, and agility, improves flexibility and posture, and reduces tension. But dancing can do much more, combining physical activity with cognitive and social challenges in a very natural way. While we move to music, our body runs at full speed, the immune system is stimulated, and endorphins are released. We feel more alert and active. Coordinated rhythmic movements create new connections in the brain. Memory and the ability to learn improve. Dancing thus has a variety of positive effects on our health.

Inclusion and psychosocial health

In addition to physical well-being, dancing and exercise also affect psychosocial health. Our health improves when interpersonal relationships are successful within our environment. Exclusion and devaluation are negative dynamics. On the other hand, communication skills, understanding, tolerance, lived appreciation, and a constructive approach to conflicts improve sociality. Dancing is a great way to open space for new experiences, to experience non-verbal communication, inclusive interaction, and to promote constructive togetherness.

Sensitization and learning through experience

We believe that experience-based learning has the most lasting impact. Our workshops are designed as learning spaces that bring people with and without impairments together to get to know each other and exchange ideas. By working together, commonalities become visible, fear of contact and (unconscious) prejudices can be reduced, and barriers as well as borders can be overcome.

 

Co-creatively, we also want to advance the topics of equal opportunity and equality through our activities, and to contribute to a diverse and vibrant society.
