TanzTanz Special


with Nicholas Palmquist

Due to huge demand, Tanz ist KLASSE! e.V. is offering another multi-day dance workshop with Nicholas Palmquist, celebrated educator, choreographer and dancer, in Berlin! Over the course of two days, he will guide the participants to make his choreography their own through his empathy, distinct musicality, and dance ingenuity.

No further performances this season.


Deutsche Oper Berlin

Enter a neutral space where you can be who you want to be. Create a space where you can be simply a dancer. Explore a space where pressure to perform and competitiveness are excluded. Even if this sounds utopian for many dance spaces, Nicholas Palmquist is able to create exactly this dance space.

In a two-day workshop you will have the opportunity to enter this space with Nicholas. After a warm-up, which prepares you for the different movement sequences and tempos, you will work under the guidance of Nicholas on one of his well-known choreographies, which are characterized by his distinctive musicality.

Nicholas Palmquist's method - the Quist Method - is a fusion of his global experience in fashion, TV/film, theater and contemporary dance. Through his gentle approach to the dancers and the dance space, he creates a neutral space where there is no right and wrong, where each dancer can feel free and valuable. It is precisely this approach to teaching that has an impact on the result on stage, film and choreography. With this method, he believes, it is the process that brings the result to success.

The workshop is aimed at everyone from 17 years, hobby dancers and professional dancers alike, with previous knowledge and fun in movement and dance. The workshop will take place on November 25th from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm and on November 26th from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm in the ballet studio of the Staatsballett Berlin in the Deutsche Oper Berlin and costs 85 euros per person. The workshop will be held in English.

The workshop is organized by Tanz ist KLASSE! e.V., the education program of the Staatsballett Berlin.
