With the artistic direction of choreographer and dance paedagogue Ellen Steinmüller from Fokus Tanz, pupils in the 8th and 1st grades of the Bürgermeister-Schütte-Grund-und Mittelschule, Garmisch-Partenkirchen will develop a dance piece on the theme of dreams, hopes and desires over a three weeks‘ period. William Shakespeare's play "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" and the musical composition by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy serve as a base and source of inspirations.
