The danceWEB Programme is a 5 week further education and exchange programme taking place every year in July and August in Vienna in the frame of ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival.
The Program offers young professional dancers and choreographers from mainly European but also non-European countries the possibility to take part in an intense multinational further training program.
The program focuses on the exchange of ideas and knowledge, not limited by national borders, on concentrated further training, on meeting with internationally renowned artists gathering at ImPulsTanz with the aim to orient the career of its participants.
In order to achieve both its educational and artistic goals, the danceWEB participants are accompanied each year by artistic mentors selected amongst dance personalities, who have played a decisive part on an international level in the development of contemporary dance in recent years.
A participation includes the following free services:
- free participation in the ImPulsTanz Research Projects (Pro Series & Field Projects)
- free participation in the ImPulsTanz workshops
- free admission to all performances of ImPulsTanz
- free accommodation in Vienna for the entire duration of the program (5 weeks)
- artistic accompaniment by the artistic mentors
- exchange of ideas and contact with the international guests at ImPulsTanz
- representation in the yearly growing, international danceWEB-database
- opportunity of building up international networks
The programme does not include travel, per diem, visa and insurance expenses! These expenses need to be covered by the participants themselves!
If selected for the danceWEB Programme, the participants still need to find a financial contribution (EUR 2.400,-) to their total programme expenses from national/regional funding institutions in their home country/country of residence in order to secure their participations.
