To the Folkwang Department of Music 


Dance is a tradition at Folkwang.

Dance education at Folkwang University of the Arts is understood as a creative process that is in a constant state of change. The aim is not to train dancers, but dancing people. In addition to fostering the individual artistic personality, the training takes into account the high demands and needs of today’s dance world.

If you are planning an event with a dance performance or need dancers and/or choreographers for a special project, we will gladly take care of your wishes! Of course, we also advise you on stage requirements and technical details.


We are actin for you!

Integrate our artists into your event.

We will be happy to work out a coherent concept with you and assist you in drawing up any schedules, e.g. for readings, moderations and speaker roles or scenic performances.

Of course, we also arrange actors and actresses for theater and film productions.

Physical Theatre

Let’s get physical!

Folkwang University of the Arts is the only university in Germany to offer state training in physical theater.

Here, young theater makers are trained to develop the ability to create their own plays. Essential means of expression are the various ways of telling stories with and about the body, the movement, the gesture.

There are various ways to integrate our Physical Theatre performers into diverse event concepts. Examples are acrobatics, juggling, physical theater in the context of walking acts, private celebrations, corporate events or exhibition openings.

We would be happy to work out a coherent concept with you and assist you in drawing up possible schedules. Of course, we will also provide you with the corresponding stage instructions.



Focus on the special.

Folkwang is considered one of the oldest training centers for photography in Germany and became the epitome of photography training in the 1950s under Otto Steinert.

Focused observation, vivid thinking and reflective seeing are at the heart of the training. Let yourself be inspired by the skills of our photographers!

We arrange our photographers for your event or project, for corporate events, private celebrations, product photography, advertising and image campaigns or architectural photography. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have!
