A project of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland and the Tanja Liedtke Foundation in the Tanzjahr 2016, in cooperation with HHI Fraunhofer Institute, Berlin
In the Tanzjahr Germany 2016, the Tanja Liedtke Foundation and the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland are starting a common initiative in order to increase the presence of dance in the media. The long-term objective is to promote dance as an artistic form of expression – physically present and intellectually reflected upon, emotional and visual – to a large audience.
Scholarship at HfMDK (Germany): Lena Paetsch
The Tanja Liedtke Foundation is very pleased to award Lena Paetsch, a third year student at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst (HfMDK) with a scholarship (Deutschlandstipendium) for the final year of her degree in Dance.
This scholarship is co-supported by the German government and will enable this very talented young artist from Rendsburg to complete her studies before launching into a professional career. Lena’s dance studies focussed on classical ballet prior to her enrolling at HfMDK. She has since experienced a very wide range of contemporary dance and travelled to Paris and New York for focussed study.
We wish Lena all the best with her studies and are very proud to be supporting her.
