Having trained at the Tulsa School of Ballet, the Tulsa Ballet Center for Dance Education and Houston Ballet II under Claudio Muños, the American dancer has also been active as a choreographer. For ‘New Steps’, the evening for young choreographers at Hannover State Opera ballet company, he contributed the pas de deux ‘Engel’ in 2010, ‘This May Be Our Last Time …’ in 2011 and ‘Storm Birth’ in 2012. He then moved to join Martin Schläpfer’s Ballett am Rhein company at the beginning of the 2013/14 season, where he was able to supplement his repertoire with works choreographed by Martin Schläpfer, Nils Christe, Merce Cunningham, Jerome Robbins and Marco Goecke, and many others. He made his debut as a choreographer with the Ballett am Rhein in 2016 with ‘Rapture’ as part of the choreography platform “Young Moves”. This was followed by ‘East Coasting’ (2017) and ‘Opus 29’ (2019). In the summer of 2021, he completed his Master’s degree in Dance Pedadogy specialising in professional training in classical ballet at the Palucca University of Dance, Dresden and at the start of the 2021/22 season he assumed the leadership of the Ballett am Rhein’s newly created dance education programme ‘Tanz mit!’ He was most recently seen on stage here as the Fire Captain in Andrey Kaydanovskiy’s ‘Die kahle Sängerin’, as the Grandfather in Demis Volpi’s ‘The Nutcracker’ and the Office Worker in ‘Geschlossene Spiele’.

    Margrit Bischof (German)

    Margrit Bischof (German)

    Margrit Bischof ist Tanzforschende und Tanzdozentin. Sie setzt sich ein für eine vielseitige Vernetzung von Forschung, Bildung und Kunst im Tanz. Die Bildung des Menschen, insbesondere die pädagogische Arbeit, zieht sich wie ein roter Faden durch ihr Leben.

    In Bern aufgewachsen und ausgebildet als Volksschullehrerin und Sportlehrerin vertiefte sie sich an der Sporthochschule Köln in den elementaren Tanz bei Maya Lex und Graziella Padilla.

    Die Lehrweise des elementaren Tanzes faszinierte sie und bald gab sie ihre Kenntnisse den Studierenden der Pädagogischen Hochschule Bielefeld, später Universität Bielefeld im Rahmen der Sportlehrer*innenausbildung weiter.

    Neugierig für die verschiedensten Vermittlungsformen des Tanzes besuchte sie unzählige Workshops und Weiterbildungen sowohl im Modern, Jazz, Tanztheater, Höfischen Tanz, später urbanen Tanz, Flamenco, Zeitgenössisch und vieles mehr.

    1982 kehrte sie in die Schweiz zurück. Als Dozentin an der Universität Bern war sie zuständig für Lehre und Forschung im Bereich des Tanzes innerhalb der Sportwissenschaft. Sie initiierte vielfältige nationale und internationale Tagungen zu Themen des Tanzes im Bildungsbereich und engagierte sich über Jahre in der Weiterbildung für ‚Tanz in der Schule‘.

    Als aktives Mitglied der Gesellschaft für Tanzforschung gtf setzte sie sich bei Symposien mit aktuellen Strömungen, Konzepten und Diskursen des Tanzes sowohl theoretisch wie auch praktisch auseinander und lernte deren Expert*innen und Forschungsfelder kennen.

    Aus diesen Begegnungen heraus entstand der Wunsch, dieses vielseitige Wissen im Tanz an die Universität Bern zu holen und es interessierten Menschen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Sie konzipierte den universitären Weiterbildungsstudiengang DAS/MAS TanzKultur und verantwortete ihn von 2002 – 2015. Als Studienleiterin begleitete sie Tanzende, Choreografierende, Fachleute aus dem Kulturmanagement und wissbegierige Tanzinteressierte auf ihrem Weg zu mehr Bildung und Wissen rund um den Tanz.

    Zurzeit ist sie Vorstandsmitglied im Dachverband Tanz Deutschland und Verbindungsperson zur Ethik-Kommission des DTD.

    Veröffentlichungen tätigte sie im Bereich Tanzpädagogik, Tanzforschung, Tanzbildung.
