Workshop Centre Arsenal

Our bright Workshop location at Arsenal, which we can use for the 15 time this year - thanks to Art for Art & the Burgtheater Vienna - is not only an accumulation of dance studios, but also the heart of the ImPulsTanz day-programme. Hot spot and oasis at the same time, it is the haven and meeting point of around 1.000 dancing people from approximately 90 countries enjoying their mutual presence in addition to taking the 230 Workshops! Our Cafeteria, run by francophil, invites eyes and stomach to stay, there is WiFi, child care, a Body Work Space and a park close-by.

The Open-Doors-Spirit

Most of the Workshops can be watched by the Arsenal visitors. The studios are big providing enough space for sitting at the corners without disturbing the classes. Follow the movements in your head and get carried away by the (Live) music and find out if the Workshop makes you want to dance.

The Open-Doors-Events

There are a lot of events taking place at the Arsenal, free of charge:

Jams & Showings
Contact Improvisation Jams are taking place on a weekly basis and are open for everyone who likes improvising in groups – mostly free admission.
Showings of Research Projects, Workshops and Residencies are taking place usually at the end of a week and are open for everyone interested to watch – free admission! The details are announced here and pinned on notice boards at the Arsenal Workshop Centre.

Body Work Space
ImPulsTanz will set up a BodyWorkSpace in the main building at the Arsenal , which will be available from 10:00 - 20:00 every day for private sessions during the festival time. To sign up for a body work session with one of our BodyWork teachers visit the merchandise table / bookshop (in the Art-for-Art building at the Arsenal).
