Workshop Centre Arsenal

Our bright Workshop location at Arsenal, which we can use for the 20th 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 220 Workshops! Our Cafeteria, run by francophil, invites eyes and stomach to stay, there is WiFi, childcare, a Body Work Space and a park close-by.

The Open-Doors-Spirit

You are welcome to watch most of the workshops at the Arsenal. The studios are huge, there is enough space to find a spot next to the dance carpet without disturbing the class. Follow the movements in your thoughts, get in the mood for dancing and let yourself be carried away by the (live) music!

The Open-Doors-Events

The following events are perfect for getting into festival mood – and are 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 dates will be announced on our website, at the Arsenal Workshop Centre and via WhatsApp on short notice.

BodyWork Space

During the festival, ImPulsTanz hosts a BodyWork Space at the Arsenal where teachers can hold one-to-one lessons. Booking is possible via the BodyWork space list, which is available at our ImPulsTanz shop at Arsenal. Further details for the units and prices are available at the Shop at the Arsenal.
