Blickfelder Festival

Die Schule tanzt!

Opernhaus Zürich, Sekundarschule Im Birch, Zürich, Pädagogische Hochschule Zürich (CH)

"Die Schule tanzt!" (The school dances) is a project that establishes dance in the school life of the Birch School. It creates an inspiring environment where students can push their boundaries, build self-confidence, and develop an understanding of the importance of art and culture.

To conclude, the students have collaborated with four choreographers and developed four dance pieces on the theme "Embarking on the Future." These will be showcased in the auditorium of the Birch School. The project is being research-supported by the Center for School Development at PHZH.
