Funk Jazz

Course with Annika Wolf

Classroom classes will only take place live with students at the tanzhaus. If it is no longer possible to continue the face-to-face classes due to pandemic restrictions, the remaining dates would be cancelled.

Annika's teaching is influenced and interwoven by many dance styles. Her classes convey elements of urban styles as well as classical jazz dance basics. "I don't commit myself, I am open to new ideas and I like to let the participants experiment with their own flow of movement:  With the help of improvisation new forms, steps and patterns of movement are created in this course, which can finally lead to a choreography. Above all, however, the kids and young people should have fun, challenge themselves and discover new aspects of themselves.

 Annika Wolf's courses are marked by the fact that improvisation and creative impulses from the children form the central artistic element. After training as a dance teacher, she continued her training in New York, Los Angeles and Cologne. Since 2008 Annika has been working as a choreographer in numerous schools in Düsseldorf, and since 2013 as a teacher at tanzhaus nrw. In January 2020, she took over the artistic supervision and coordination for the dance department of the Kulturamt NRW. "For me, it's about the children getting a feeling for themselves and their movements. I accompany many children and young people over the years and it makes me particularly happy when I notice the progress they make and how proud they are of themselves," says Annika.
