– Everyone can dance
Public Moves is the name of the ImPulsTanz project, which already began to abandon the sacred temples of high art in 2017 with the aim of coming more directly to the people. Breaking down barriers was a central concern, right from the very start. The first performances took place in the courtyard of the Museumsquartier. Later, the cooperation with the Kultursommer enabled the workshop programme to be expanded. This year, around 300 courses with professionals for all levels and age groups will take place between 6th July and 15th
August. Participants will dance on a range of stages distributed right across the city, such as in the Aspern Arena, in front of the Rathaus, on the Kaiserwiese in the Prater, next to the Hirschstetten swimming pool or, as described above, at the Sportinsel on the Donauinsel.
Everyone can dance. You don’t need any previous dancing experience and you can sign up for every course the day before. In any event, the courses sound like they’ll be a lot of action and fun: from “What is good taste anyway?” (16th
July, Kaiserwiese), via “Screaming Out Loud” (23rd July, Maria-von-Zeitoun Church), to “Virgin Vogue” (24th July, Sportinsel) and “Power Animals” (5th August, Kaiserwiese). 112 teachers will you offer an insight into how they work.
