Recommendation: “BEETHOVEN MOVES” at Kunsthistorisches Museum

The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, in cooperation with the Archive of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna, presents an unusual homage to Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827), the great representative of the First Viennese School. Beethoven’s popularity remains unbroken, even 250 years after his birth.

Lass springen! Cause dancing is for everyone!

Not only is dancing much fun and awakens your zest for life, it also strengthens your capacity for empathy, self-confidence and cognitive skills – Casinos Austria share the same opinion and therefore donated 30 ImPulsTanz workshops to economically disadvantaged children and teenagers. Together with you and Lass springen!, we hope to be able to give the chance to take part in a workshop to many more children. Any donation to Lass springen! will be doubled by ImPulsTanz – so your contribution is worth twice as much! The workshops financed through these donations will be provided to SOS-Kinderdorf and the NGO Flucht nach Vorn. MORE
