URBAN COMMUNITY DANCE @DietenbachFestspiele

#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.

Saltango believes:
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:
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.
