Cullberg Ballet is a part of IDOCDE (International Documentation of Contemporary Dance Education) supporting the professional development of pedagogues and teachers in contemporary dance. The aim of the project is to improve dance educational methods by creating a database for documentation. Another intention is to increase the visibility and to broaden the picture of contemporary dance in Europe.
The two year pilot program (2011-2013) is a network of twelve European dance educators who will meet regularly for exchange, peer research and for the development of an online database. The aim of the online database is to become a useful tool for contemporary dance educators worldwide.
The meetings of these European dance educators and the database development will be accompanied by local workshops at each partner organisation for the benefit of regional key teachers. These workshops will result in a meeting of all 100+ key teachers at Ponderosa, Stolzenhagen, Germany, in summer 2012. The pilot program will culminate in a symposium during ImPulsTanz Vienna International Dance Festival, Austria in summer 2013.
The project is financed by the Lifelong Learning program by the European Union under the project title European Documentation of Contemporary Dance Education.
