Founded in 1950, the folklore dance ensemble “Thea Maass” of TU Dresden developed to one of the most efficient and formed amateur dance groups of Germany. At the moment, under the leading of Maud Butter, about 35 dancers and musicians dedicate themselves to the care and interpretation of German and foreign dance folklore, as well as the artistic conversion of tradition from different parts of Germany.
The sensitive contact with song and dance is most important. The aim of choreographer, dance pedagogue and dance director Thea Maass was not only to show the beauty of traditional dance but also its vivacity and variety.
Festivals and competitions in Germany and abroad are a good opportunity for all the dancers to show this purpose. The dance group had already performed in almost all countries of Europe and also in the USA.
