The healing power of dance for everyone, regardless of age and movement limitations.

Tanec Praha is a partner of the Dance Well project, which supports the professional development of dance artists and organizations dedicated to dance for people with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. The aim of the project is to support the development of skills, artistic talent, knowledge and the fulfilment of the potential of innovative approaches in the impact on societal well-being and social cohesion.

We launched Dance Well lessons for the public on 14 March 2023 at KC Vozovna. Since then, they have been taking place regularly every Tuesday from 10:00 – 11:00. From January 2024 we hold at least once a month Tuesday lessons also in the afternoon. You can always find an overview of the upcoming lessons on our website.

A deep Dance Well experience in an inspiring environment?

Thanks to a collaboration with the Prague City Gallery and the National Gallery Prague we also visit unique gallery spaces. Don't miss a special lesson in the Prague City Gallery - Municipal Library (Mariánské náměstí 98/1, 2nd floor), the Convent of St. Agnes (U Milosrdných 17, Svatyně Salvátora) or the Trade Fair Palace (Dukelských hrdinů 47).

Regular meetings are led by a team of professional artists trained as part of the international Dance Well project: Cécile da CostaBára LátalováHana PolanskáMarkéta Vacovská, Markéta Perroud and Roman Zotov Mikshin.
In the autumn of 2023, dancer and choreographer Jaro Viňarský was invited to collaborate on a choreographic work, which he is now working on together with the project participants. It will premiere at the TANEC PRAGUE 2024 festival.
