How to get there
Take the Ferry from Dabegüll Mole to Wittdün on Amrum or park your car at the parking lot near the ferry terminal and take the ferry as a pedestrian. Apart from costing less, you won‘t need a car on the island. To get around you can rent a bicycle, which is the easiest and quickest way to move around the island. Or take the bus (the bus doesn‘t run via the village Steenodde).
You can either book your trainticket directly to Wittdün or you book a supersaver (Sparpreis) to Niebüll Station and change to the railbus, which will take you to the ferry terminal Dagebül Mole. On the railbus you can purchase a ticket for the railbus as well as the ferry.
On www.amrum.de (choose „wohnen“) you can find a variety of accomodation options ranging from private rooms for a small budget up to luxerious holiday homes.
There is also a Youth Hostel in Wittdün.
According to the weather we will be working either inside the studio, at the beach, inside the dunes or in the forest. Please bring water-/windproof clothing.
The studio is located at Amrum Spa, a health centre with a pool in Wittdün, which is close to the dunes. No shoes are allowed in the studio. Please bring socks.
There are two Cafés located nearby: One of them directly inside the Amrum-Spa, the other just a few meters from there. There are Supermarkets in Wittdün, Nebel and Norddorf. Restaurants and Cafés you can find in all villages of the island as well as on some of the beaches.
Recognized Study Leave Program
Awaken the Dance Spirit is a recognized educational leave program organized by Gabrielle Staiger in cooperation with tanzhaus nrw, Düsseldorf. The educational leave act embraces different requirements according to the individual state. Please inform yourself about the requirements in your state and talk to your employer. Due to the time requirements this educational leave programme will most likely be reckognized in your state and by your employer too!
On Amrum there is a Deep Sea Climate. That means also that the wind is mainly blowing from the open sea, the air is low in pollutants and high in salt. Because of this very healthy type of climate, Amrum is also an Air Spa for respiratory diseases. Although in May we have the highest amount of sunny days and the least amount of rain per month and year the weather can change rapidly. Clothing to protect you from rain and wind and an extra sweathshirt is recommended. Light shoes for working on the beach are recommended, for instance an old pair of trainers.
Please bring sunscreen too.
During project times you are insured via tanzhaus nrw.
You would love to come but you don‘t have time in May? You participated already and you would like to come again? No problem: You can sign up for a newsletter here which will inform you about this project as well as others to come.
I look forward to meeting you.
