The joy of dance is the core of our philosophy

Enjoyment of movement plays an essential role in development, as children and adolescents experience, explore, and conquer the world through movement and their motor skills. Movement, play, and sports promote motor, cognitive, emotional, and social competencies, thus influencing personality development.

Side effects of dance

Why do we consider dance so valuable? Besides promoting motor skills, balance, and posture, social skills are also trained, providing an ideal balance to everyday school life. It is essential to prevent postural damage at an early age. For adults, dancing is usually limited to birthday parties and club nights. However, for children and adolescents, it is much more and ultimately benefits not only the body but also the soul. Dance promotes physical development, musicality, and creativity, and it strengthens self-confidence. These are qualities that are beneficial throughout life. Interestingly, an increasing number of studies also show that early childhood movement improves cognition, as dance activities engage both brain hemispheres – the motor region and the language center.

At the Bewegungswelt, we attach great importance to specifically promoting and challenging children and adolescents according to their age and anatomy in a playful way. All of our teachers follow our internal dance curriculum, which defines what should be taught at each age to guarantee high movement quality. Especially with younger dance students, we package dance techniques in stories because children want to experience adventures. For example, we fly through the room in a magic airplane at low altitude (in plié), and then we soar to the sky (in relevé).


For dance lessons, we ask for movement-friendly clothing, socks, tied-back hair, no jewelry due to the risk of injury, and, if necessary, something to drink.

Administratively, we request regular attendance and timely cancellation via the absence form (explained at the time of enrollment).

We are often asked whether dance is suitable for boys. At this point, one thing should be noted: dance does not imply that a pink tutu must be worn. Rather, children can also dance the roaring lion or mimic a cheeky fox – gender does not play a role. For the youngest dance students (approx. 4-6 years) in our dance lessons, various rhythms and techniques are tried out. We improvise, try various ballet exercises, and dance folk dances. In the next age group of dance students (7-9 years), “real” step sequences are taught, and various dance styles are introduced (e.g., modern dance, jazz dance, street dance). From around 10 years of age, children then decide on one or more dance styles in which they want to intensify their dance training.
