DANCE is internationally recognised as an ambitious public festival, both in the diversity and quality of its programme. It is based on the criteria of diversity, inclusion and sustainability.

DANCE reflects current states of international contemporary dance. It should employ unique venues and feature genre-breaking experimental styles. 

For the realisation of the festival programme (including all fees and costs), approximately 688,000 EUR and rent contingencies are currently available on a biennial basis, subject to the respective municipal council decisions for the financial year.
