Summer Dance is tanz raum’s international dance meeting
for dance & music from Egypt with special guests from Egypt

Summer Dance is an ideal opportunity to work with Caroline Chevat and Claudia Heinle, unique artists in their field, as well as celebrated artists from Egypt, who enrich the week with their music, dance and knowledge.


"The week permits total immersion in dance 
related to combat and zar healing movement." 

We teach a modern expression of the Egyptian dance and music language without separating it from its rich and powerful tradition and take you on a journey to the universe of the human body to understand the basis of movement through Egyptian Yoga, Gyrokinesis® and the movement traditions of Sufism in Egypt.
