Ongoing updates on Public Moves

Due to the bad weather forecast, we unfortunately have to cancel the classes on 11th July that are planned on the grass: 09:00 Gabriella Cimino Original Pilates, 11:00 Inge Kaindlstorfer Talking Circle – Exploring the Variety of Distant Contact and 16:00 Daniel Aschwanden Improvisation on Kaiserwiese at Prater as well as 16:00 pm Irene Coticchio Voice Practice & Impro on Zirkuswiese in Alterlaa. But don't worry, the teachers offer more dates!

In addition, Romy Kolb will take over Nina Kripa’s HipHop class at 19:00 at Seestadt Aspern. Reservations already made remain valid! MORE

Let's keep dancing!

Cancelled? As if! We make virtue out of necessity and will simply move the dancing to the outdoors this summer, for the biggest Public Moves powered by AK Wien edition ever! From 9th July to 30th August 2020 we are organising 296 free workshops with 90 teachers at seven public places and parks in the city. With everything from African dance with Koffi Kôkô, ballet with Elizabeth Ward, Bollywood with Jaskaran Anand to contemporary dance with Joe Alegado, flamenco with Marco de Ana, tap dance with Mani Obeya, a tough workout with Florentina Holzinger and much more. For all age groups and all levels – at a distance.
We look forward to seeing you! MORE

Cancellation of the ImPulsTanz Festival 2020 & postponement of certain projects

On 17th April 2020 the Austrian Federal Government announced further steps regarding its measures against COVID-19. Those measures as well as the international situation, the continuing massive travel restrictions and unpredictable visa problems, force us to take a painful but nevertheless clear step: The 37th edition of the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival from 9th July to 9th August 2020 cannot take place in its originally planned and later adapted form.

Especially the ImPulsTanz festival – as well as our whole artform – thrives on live atmosphere, diversity and international, transcultural exchange. Therefore, we are doing our utmost in order to revive this atmosphere, if at all possible, with Public Moves in summer and together with our museum partners in autumn. The 2020 programme will be largely maintained for ImPulsTanz 2021 (15th July to 15th August). Nevertheless, it is important to be open for new artistic works, that are still being created in response to this crisis, for the upcoming programme. We keep you posted and look forward to dancing together again!

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!
