Artistically and structurally advancing the development of dance as an art form in Germany; strengthening the self-organisation and raising the profile of the dance scene
Ensembles; artists' cooperatives; individual artists; production infrastructure and performance venues
Making substantial dance projects possible by means of a long-term increase in funding for excellence; conducting dialogue with local authorities and Lander on lasting involvement with the dance scene nationwide; applying principle of additionality of funding to guarantee that co-financing from Lander matches the funding from the federal budget
During the initial 2018-2021 project period, 15 projects were selected as eligible for funding by an independent jury of specialists and received financial and programmatic support; in 2019, positive development resulted in an extension into the first year of the coming 2021-2025 project period.
Five-year federal funding of EU5.6 million (2017-2021); 50% co-financing by local authorities/Lander and, where applicable, additional funding providers, at least equal to the amount of federal funding; EU1.1 million for 2021 already approved by the German Bundestag in 2019

The model of cooperative division of labour to strengthen cultural diversity in the field of dance is achieving its objectives; positive assessment of the initial 2017-2018 project cycle led to an extension into the second project period, which begins in 2021.
