Team up! Dance Camp

For the first time in 2020, ImPulsTanz offers the one-week training camp Team up!. It is especially aimed at groups of eight or more people, who want to deepen their training, improve their technique and gain new input. Individual training schedules are tailored to the needs of the participants and performance visits provide creative impulses.

Publication: “Dance & visual impairment"

Dance & visual impairment  – For an accessibility of choreographic practices, produced by Centre national de la danse and Cemaforre-European Centre for Cultural Accessibility in the frame of the THE HUMANE BODY EU project, raises questions of how our senses are used in dance teaching practice. In considering how we might develop a more inclusive teaching methodology for blind and partially sighted learners it also exposes other questions: how might traditional ocular-centric teaching models be denying the potential for everyone of a more multi-sensory approach to learning dance? What possibilities might there be for a pedagogy that embraces touch and hearing as equals with vision?

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
