Support ImPulsTanz

Next year, pandemic-related challenges will continue to affect us. For example, we will maintain the distances between the workshop participants. However, this means that we will need to add more mirror walls and additional rolls of dance floor. To realise this we would be very happy about your support! Donations can easily be made online and are tax deductible.

Furthermore, we invite you to become an ImPulsBringer. Friends of ImPulsTanz have the chance to take an exclusive look behind the scenes of one of the biggest dance festivals in the world and to learn new and exciting things about the international dance scene and personal details about the artists and their pieces through introductory talks.
