Dance and Theatre Workshops for Children & Youth 
A project by Dschungel Wien and ImPulsTanz

Soon it will be the ImPulsTanz time again! In the middle of it all, a great offer for everyone from 3 to 18 years at and together with the Dschungel Wien: Shake the Break! Dancing is expression and movement. Dancing is joie de vivre, a source of strength. It gives you self-confidence. Dancing means spending time together with others, immersing yourself in another world, feeling great, feeling your strength and simply letting go.

Elda Gallo teaches dancing acrobats to fly (6 to 10 years) and Ákos Hargitay overcomes obstacles with BodyParkour (10+). Those who want to work on inner strength and balance with the power animal experts Johanna Figl & Martina Rösler in Power Animals (8+) have booked an exciting holiday! In the Shake the Break workshops you can also think a lot about our world and about love: Laura Steinhöfel calls 8- to 11-year-olds to the "Children's Conference", while Sanja Tropp Frühwald gets to the bottom of the secrets of love with everyone aged 14 and up. You can choose to be anything: from a bouncy ball in Suni Löschner's course to princesses or princes with the artist collective KLAUS. You can get to know a wide variety of social dances in the HipHop workshops: Waacking and Voguing with Romy Kolb, stage-ready Fila and Roger Rabbits with Daybee Dorzile or the wave with Attila Zanin, the workshop for young people with and without disabilities. 6- to 10-year-olds learn the basics of breaking with Markus Eggensperger and 7- to 12-year-olds mix modern styles with traditional African dance with Futurelove Sibanda. What a summer ahead of us!

Date & Place: The Shake the Break Workshops take place from Monday to Friday between 19th July and 13th August 2021 at Dschungel Wien.
