Tanztag Rhein-Main

The Tanztag event in the Rhine-Main area is one-of-a-kind in Germany. For one entire day, institutions across the region offer trial classes in every dance style from classical ballet and contemporary dance to historical folk dancing and flamenco, hip-hop and swing. This single day not only illustrates the astounding diversity of dance in the region, but also allows everyone and anyone to experience and (re)discover this singular art form and the many different dance styles available.

Tanztag Rhein-Main 2018

In the context of the Tanzfestival Rhein-Main 2018 the sixth edition of the Tanztag Rhein-Main on November 10 invited even more dance enthusiasts than last year to dance along and discover all imaginable dances and dance styles. More than 900 dance enthusiasts came to the participating institutions, clubs, theatres and dance schools in Bad Homburg, Darmstadt, Frankfurt, Friedberg, Friedrichsdorf, Liederbach, Offenbach, Rüsselsheim, Schwalbach and Wiesbaden.

In approximately 180 introductory courses, an incredible variety of dance styles was waiting to be tried out – from classical ballet, waltz and contemporary dance to historical dance forms, Flamenco or Bollywood, hip hop and swing. In the evening, dancing continued at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, where the great Tanzfest, which has become another Tanztag tradition, was celebrated until late into the night. Seven different groups and clubs once again led the dances, which visitors then danced together.

Glittering Party in the evening

The grand finale is a glittering party in the evening at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm which is all about collective dancing. To close the day of dancing together and to celebrate themselves, various dances are introduced and collectively danced by the attendants.

It’s just a great way to get to know new dance styles and teachers, to dip in the great toe and – above all! – to get the desire to want ‘more’ […]

A succesful day! The Tanzfest in the Union Halle was especially great, such a wonderful idea to let the course leaders instruct short choreographies. It has been a long time since I have experienced such a great sense of community and joy on a party

I didn‘t know that even daddies and Grandpas can dance ‘Bollywood’. But here the grandchildren seemed to be the motivating factor. I would very much like to participate again next year. The most important thing on such a day is, that people who don’t have the financial capabilities are also enabled to enjoy so many different dance styles and that families can experience dance together.
