#URBAN COMMUNITY DANCE IN FREIBURG
Saltango – as an urban community dance center – believes that dancing can change the world.
Saltango has become part of a new, worldwide dance wave — where folk & urban dances have returned to big cities, allowing people from different cultures and generations to dance together – outdoors and indoors – making many people happier.
Dance has always had a special power and the goal of connecting human beings with themselves, with their deeper being and with each other in a healing way. Music comes from – and may lead to – some of the finest feelings of the human heart. Couple dances and circular folk dances always had a strong healing effect onto communities. Dance and music can help to overcome the destructive divisions between humans.
In times of a spiritual and cultural vacuum and chaos, we need to cultivate values and activities that promote positive relations and integration. URBAN COMMUNITY DANCE can contribute as a cultural remedy to prevent society from conflicts and growing commercialization. Dance can prevent people from illness, depression and anger.
Saltango wants to contribute to this global movement by creating events and spaces that promote an accessible, visible, and non-standardized dance and music culture. They seek to promote informal, non-institutional learning as a social activity in times of increasing monetization and capitalization.
Saltango wants to offer this experience to as many people as possible, in public spaces of Freiburg and indoors:
– people who wish but don’t dare to make an experiences with dance culture
– people who never imagined they could dance by themselves – who are used to always being a spectator.
URBAN COMMUNITY DANCE is a directly rewarding complementing cultural and social element of our time — a non-commercial, non-digital, playful experience between humans. Dance sessions happen frequently at the Mensabrunnen near the Unibibliothek and allow a passerby to step in and join the movement.
