We, the Ag Tanz und Elternschaft (Dance and Parenthood), are an association / initiative of Berlin dance artists with the goal of improving the working conditions of dance professionals in parenthood. Founded in ZTB (Zeitgenössischer Tanz Berlin) e.V. in November 2020, we work self-organized and on a voluntary basis. We meet once a month online, since summer 2022 also in presence/live.
