Public Moves 2020

About eight brilliant weeks for Public Moves are coming to an end and we say THANK YOU to all who participated and made it possible that also this summer, despite all the obstacles, nobody had to sit still! In the 300 workshops held by 90 teachers, around 19,000 people learned new moves, tested their own limits or simply let go, despite the rain or scorching heat. Another 13,000 people enjoyed watching the classes. What a success! We are looking forward to next year: from 15th July to 15th August! MORE

Public Moves – open classes for everyone

From 9th July to 30th August we’re dancing again at seven locations in Vienna: Several times a day, in any weather, 90 teachers will offer insights into different dance styles – from ballet and bodywork to jazz and hip hop, voguing and yoga. The 296 workshops are open to all age groups and abilities, no previous knowledge necessary. Thanks to the generous support of the Arbeiterkammer Wien, all workshops are once again free of charge!
