About ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival (ImPulsTanz)
Founded in 1984, ImPulsTanz has developed into one of the biggest festivals of contemporary dance worldwide. During summer every year, ImPulsTanz organises a one-month dance festival in Vienna, programmes include performances, educational programmes, and forums, attracting dancers, choreographers, and artists from all around the world to participate in exchanges and cooperations in Vienna. “ATLAS Create Your Dance Trails” is a module-based training programme embedded in the ImPulsTanz. It offers a dynamic environment that allows young dance artists with first choreographic experience to intensively work on their professional development. The Programme is designed to address two basic needs of emerging choreographers: on the one hand, having studio space available for research and the creation of new work, and on the other hand, get new input through top-class training possibilities, a broad range of international dance productions and the exchange with fellow artists.
