K3 | Tanzplan Hamburg

K3 – Centre for Choreography | Tanzplan Hamburg at Kampnagel is competence centre for expertise in contemporary dance and choreography. Its programme focuses on residencies that combine artistic research and production, courses and qualification programmes for dance professionals, as well as dance mediation and cultural outreach. The choreographic centre is one of the few dance houses in the German-speaking region and the only one in northern Germany. 
K3 | Tanzplan Hamburg was founded in the 2006/07 season as part of the Federal Cultural Foundation’s Tanzplan Deutschland initiative (2006 to 2010). In 2007, the k3 exhibition hall at Kampnagel was renovated with funds provided by the Hamburg Cultural Authority. The resulting three dance studios, as well as the adjacent studio stage P1, now form the basis of K3 | Tanzplan Hamburg. K3 is an artistically independent institution operating within the organisational structure of Kampnagel.

As a globally affiliated dance house, K3 is a key initiator for the continued visibility and empowerment of dance as an art form in Hamburg, regionally, nationally and internationally.
The three main areas of activity – residencies, classes and training, dance outreach – are contextually closely interwoven in order to render the boundaries between artistic work and dance outreach permeable. They are also the basis for, often longstanding, collaborations with academic and artistic institutions in various local, national and international contexts. Regular classes and professional trainings, specialised qualification formats as well as orientation and counselling services are also directed at professional dance makers and cultural practitioners. Programmes and courses for dance enthusiasts of all ages combine dance practice and discourse. A special focus is placed on cultural education formats for children and young people, both in the context of partnerships with schools, in projects with and by young people, and through dance pieces for young audiences.
