In 2016, on the initiative of Helga Neira Zugasty and with the support of the Ministry of Social Affairs, a further option for our advanced dancers in the direction of professional engagement opened up: after developing a suitable curriculum, we were able to train ten young dancers as dance assistants. 

They completed ten lessons per week in addition to their work and obligations as company dancers. The range of subjects covered both theory and practice: The dancers learned the practical teaching of the basic elements of modern dance, hip-hop dance and break dance. And they gained basic theoretical knowledge about the three dance techniques as well as about body and health.

With this pilot project, which was also scientifically evaluated in the context of a diploma thesis, the association in the arts sector is making an important contribution to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Two Dance Assists are now working on a five-hour-per-week basis.
