Since September 2013 tanzhaus nrw engages in „Chance Tanz“ a nationwide initiative promoting dance and artistic projects. By a process orientated method it enables the children and yound adults taking part to artistically experience topics of their own. In three so-called “Try It Outs” young dancers from four Düsseldorf schools in co-operating with three youth centres show what they have worked on. Through dance the groups, supervised by eight choreographers have grappled with topics like their own strengths and weaknesses, emotions, justice and injustice.
