Tanja Liedtke Foundation commisions research project by INSA-CONSULERE Dancing is “in”.

A significant majority of Germans (76%) is convinced that dancing is very healthy. 56% of the German population can dance, but still more women (65%) than men (46%) like to dance. These are the results of a representative survey by the opinion research institute INSA-CONSULERE on behalf of the Tanja Liedtke Stiftung. 64% support the idea that dancing promotes integration and social solidarity. Only 8% know that next year will be the “year of dance” in Germany. Those surveyed agree that dancing should be promoted. 66% believe that children should have the opportunity to learn how to dance in school. Interesting facts: 12.4 million people like contemporary dance and 15.5 million say it is part of Germany. This research project was made possible by Mrs. Dr. Christiane Weickart, Tanja Liedtke Foundation wishes to thank Mrs Weickart for her generosity. The research was facilitated by INSA-CONSULERE, a research institution based in Erfurt, Germany. insa-consulere.de
