Public Moves

Daily, outdoors and free of charge
30 May – 9 August 2024

At the Public Moves dance classes, people dance outdoors every day and this year there are even more classes at even more locations! More than 170 international and local instructors will share their knowledge of everything from yoga to Bollywood dance to HipHop in over 350 free outdoor classes at a total of ten locations – including outside Vienna for the first time. And as always: no previous knowledge is necessary, every body, age and level is welcome!

The first stop will be in Klagenfurt, more precisely in the Landhaushof, from 30 May to 9 June. There you can look forward to African Dances, Tap Dance, Yoga, Contemporary Dance and much more. Next up is a stop at Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz from 13 to 23 June with Improvisation, Tai Chi, HipHop and Breaking. And from 27 June to 7 July, Public Moves in Salzburg promises not only House, Freestyle and Contemporary Dance, but also a wonderful view over the city from the sculpture terrace of the Museum der Moderne Salzburg on the Mönchsberg.

At the same time, the first of a total of seven Viennese locations with Yoga, House, Improvisation and much more starts at Seestadt on 8 June. Finally, from 12 July to 9 August, you can dance again in front of the MuseumsQuartier, on the Papstwiese, at Kaiserwasser and at the Hirschstetten bathing pond as well as at two new locations – at Schwarzenbergplatz and at Richard-Wagner-Platz.

Registration is possible one day before the start of the course from 11:00 in the morning via the calendar or by telephone on +43.1.523 55 58-19. If a class is marked as ‘fully booked’, it is still possible to get a remaining place on site. It’s worth stopping by!

There is also a stronger focus on accessibility, for example, one class in each city is translated into Austrian Sign Language (ÖGS), almost all locations are accessible without barriers and the ImPulsTanz team is available in advance and on site to assist with any special needs and is happy to support all participants in the classes.
