ImPacT <<
The two-week programme ImPact is specifically designed for students (and those, who have graduated recently).

They will get to know the dance industry, start to create networks and think about the impact of possible career choices with the aim to start a self-reflective process on what to do with their dance life. Therefore, ImPulsTanz provides a nurturing space for discussion, networking through close involvement with peers and a mentor. The programme also offers events with festival choreographers, teachers and organisers. To apply, please send the completed application form, a CV and a portrait photo via e-mail to

Team up! <<
ImPulsTanz offers a one-week training camp Team up!. It is especially aimed at groups of eight or more people, who want to deepen their training, improve their technique and gain new input. Individual training schedules are tailored to the needs of the participants and performance visits provide creative impulses. Contact
