Guiding principles

Tanzhaus Zürich is a contemporary dance centre and production house that caters for the needs of professional contemporary dancers and dance companies offering a wide range of services. The Tanzhaus is constantly evolving, consistently daring to explore new perspectives by offering a variety of experiences and possibilities. It combines the possibilities of a well-equipped production site with the potential of a multi-functional and innovative performance space. It is a research center, production centre, a training centre, a performance venue, a centre of information and a meeting point – a centre of expertise for dance.

A programme for young audiences

Under the label Tanzhaus young, Tanzhaus Zürich presents dance performances for young audiences and school classes, offers courses for children and young adults, and launches its own projects and holiday courses in cooperation with other municipal institutions.

History

Tanzhaus Zurich was founded in 1996. From 2012 to 2019, it had to be relocated into a venue with studio spaces and a large stage.

Building and facilities

Tanzhaus Zürich moved into its renewed building in 2019. It has now 2 stages and 3 studios (each about 100m2).

Bühne 1 is primarily used for professional rehearsals and performances as well as by residency guests. It is only available for rental in exceptional cases.

Bühne 2 primarily serves professional rehearsals, courses and workshops and is used by residency guests.
