ImPulsTanz, that’s performances, workshops, research projects and soçial – the nightly party programme.
Founded in 1984, ImPulsTanz has become one of the most distinguished festivals for contemporary dance worldwide. Thousands of professional dancers, choreographers, teachers and dance aficionados from all over the world encounter each other here, inspire each other, investigate together, exchange and turn Vienna each summer into the epicentre of contemporary dance and performance art.
More than 100.000 people visit the festival each year, the biggest of its kind in Europe.
- As audience of the more than 100 performances in Burgtheater or Volkstheater, in Schauspielhaus, the venues in MuseumsQuartier, or the more than 15 further venues and spaces of the city.

- Or as visitors of the two grand festival parties in Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz or the nightly DJ-lines and concerts at the ImPulsTanz festival lounge in Burgtheater Vestibül.
In the ImPulsTanz Performance programme contemporary dance creations by established choregraphers meet trendsetting productions by a new generation of artists, who have found a firm place in the festival within the [8:tension] Young Choregraphers’ Series. In the form of exhibitions, installations, book presentations and discussions the ImPulsTanz Extras offer a deeper insight into the world of dance.
The Workshop programme welcomes several thousand participants from more than 80 countries each year: beginners of all ages as well as professionals take the chance to study with international, renowned direction-giving choreographers.
