What does dance education look like today and how can the knowledge imparted within dance studies be regularly updated? Since students and teachers are experts in dance education from different perspectives, the symposium is dedicated to the intensive exchange of students and lecturers in order to develop ideas for an update of dance knowledge.
Where does the training and knowledge living in the dancers body meet the influence and impact of its digital surroundings? How can the next generation of dancers relate to and help shape their relationship to digitalization? Through physical tasks and peer discussions, the dancers and educators will be invited to engage with their embodied knowledge as a means to reflect and investigate their digital landscape and its impact on dance education. From tic toc to socialmedia influencers to understanding the inheritance of a dance legacy via digitalization, participants will be asked to reflect and design their digital dance future.
