For the first time in 2020, ImPulsTanz offers a special package for school and university groups of 8 or more people. This is not only supposed to make Europe's largest festival for contemporary dance a first-hand experience, but also to individually encourage the strengths of the students. In addition to the basic package which consists of workshops, performances and parties, there is also the option to rent a studio, organise a public showing and integrate one of the ImPulsTanz teachers as coach in the work processes.

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?
