ArtRose – The 60+ community dance ensemble

With Jenny Coogan (Professor, Palucca University of Dance)

No previous knowledge and physical conditions required


Movement and dance for all young people over 60 years. Participation desired, watching allowed. No previous knowledge and physical conditions required – simply pleasure and good mood. The 60+ community dance ensemble called ArtRose and HELLERAU regularly invite you to experience movement and dance without physical limits.

The vitality and expressiveness of the more mature age is celebrated in this workshop. A focus is aimed at drawing attention to sensory perception and kinaesthetic feedback in a way that promotes joy and playfulness. The meditation strategies are guided by explorative movement tasks and dance “improvisation scores”, which are done with the idea of opening the space for personal feeling and interpretation. The worry of ‘not doing it right’ does not even arise. Dancing is based on individual and contextual freedom of choice, and demands specific attention, presence and curiosity from the practitioner. Everyone is welcome. The goal is to create an atmosphere in which everyone feels that we are dancing together and still respect the precepts of social distancing.

Of course, this workshop will also be corona-suitable and will take place under consideration of the hygiene measures. Please bring your own masks. There will be a corresponding introduction on site.
