3G REGULATION

We have decided to keep the 3G rule for our studio for the most part after 11.10.2021. This means that you can still participate in almost all classes with a negative test as well. Testing is not mandatory for those who are fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid.

The ‘Intro to Contact’ class with Andrew Wass and the Contact Jam that will resume on 04/11/2021 will be held under the 2G rule (vaccinated or recovered only).

The following tests are acceptable:

– A point-of-care (PoC) antigen test no more than 24 hours old with a negative result.
– a self-test performed under supervision at our studio at least 15 minutes before the start of the class with a negative result. These can be either brought to the studio or purchased from us at cost price.

This also means that in the entire studio distancing and masks are still mandatory, please take off your masks only when you are actively dancing.

With the exception of the 2G events, there will continue to be a limited number of participants. Secure your spots now via Eversports, directly through our timetable or the USC App!

Studio Philosophy

Marameo is a lively and inspiring place for anyone who wants to pursue their individual approaches to dance.

We host courses and classes that teach precise dance techniques as well as the art of improvisation for participants of all ages and alle levels of experience.

Dancing is an art of interaction, of relationships.

That’s why we make sure that our courses have a friendly atmosphere where recognition and appreciation combine with challenges and constructive feedback, to create training experiences in which social interaction feeds artistic thinking and outstanding professional quality.

We are an international centre for exchange, communication and shared passion, but we also have a local outlook and encourage people from our neighbourhood to participate in our programms.

About marameo

marameo was founded in 1992 and, since that time, has established itself as an institution of vital importance to the Berlin dance scene. The original concept – to offer affordable, daily training for professional dancers – has remained constant over the years. Situated in the centre of Berlin, the studio sees itself as a place of exchange for more then 100 people, who daily attend classes and who demand the highest quality from our courses.

Mornings at Marameo belong to professional dancers who can rely on continuity, as well as innovative approaches, in both the classical and modern classes which are taught by experienced teachers and international guests. ‘ShowTime’, which has become a very sought-after platform, provides professional dancers training at Marameo with the opportunity to present their work.

In the afternoons, approximately 100 children between the ages of 4 and 16 take dance courses at Marameo. As well as helping children discover a joy in movement, the classes develop their emotional and physical strength. The preparation for the annual performances gives our young dancers the opportunity to take an active part in the creative process and to develop a feeling for dance as a performing art.

Courses on our diverse evening programme are chiefly influenced by each teacher’s unique artistic perspective. There are just as inspiring courses for beginners as there are for advanced dance fanatics. Performance projects, which bring exciting dance pieces to the stage, take place on a regular basis.

Marameo Berlin e.V is a registered non-profit organisation which aims to promote contemporary dance forms to people of all ages. Children, teenagers, adults, amateurs and professional dancers can all connect with and experience the fascination of physical movement.

Jose Limon technique

In addition to dance technique, which includes spatial orientation, we also dance various step combinations from pop culture to loosen up. In the second part of the lesson, we apply what we have learned in a choreography and try out our dancing expression. The spectrum of our dances ranges from lyrical Adagio, Pop, Hip-Hop and Showdance to instrumental contemporary pieces in which interdisciplinary excursions are integrated. Students have the possibility to combine the lessons in modern dance technique with a second lesson in choreography & improvisation, but can also attend the dance technique lesson separately.
