The last dances for 2023 were held outdoor at the Public Moves classes on 4 August and indoor at the «expressions’23» at Schmelz on 5 August. We are very pleased that 42,100 classes were attended this year and over 17,000 people danced at and watched the Public Moves outdoor classes. Thanks to our Public Moves partners Arbeiterkammer Wien, Raiffeisen, Stadtbank in Wien, MuseumsQuartier Wien and the district administration of the 22nd district of Vienna, without whom none of this would have been possible.

In the end, the international jury, consisting of Archie Burnett, Silke Grabinger, Terence Lewis, Sri Louise and Stéphane Peeps, decided in favour of the Salzburg choreographer and dancer Farah Deen, who prevailed against a total of 40 outstanding participants. Congratulations from the bottom of our hearts!
