Applications are open for the Further Education and Exchange Programme at ImPulsTanz danceWEB in Vienna 6 July–10 August 2022. Dancers and emerging choreographers are invited to apply for Scholarships to join the professional development programme.

The Scholarship Programme is a 5 week further training program taking place every year in July - August in Vienna in the frame of IMPULSTANZ - Vienna International Dance Festival.

The Program offers young professional dancers and choreographers from mainly European but also non-European countries the possibility to take part in an intense multinational further training program.

The program focuses on the exchange of ideas and knowledge, not limited by national borders, on concentrated further training, on meeting with internationally renowned artists gathering at ImPulsTanz with the aim to orient the career of the participants.

In order to achieve both its educational and artistic goals, the scholarship recipients are accompanied each year by artistic mentors selected amongst dance personalities, who have played a decisive part on an international level in the development of contemporary dance in recent years.

Each year, outstanding personalities from the international dance and performance scene support the students as artistic mentors. So far, these have included: Mathilde Monnier, Jonathan Burrows, David Zambrano, Sarah Michelson, DD Dorvillier, Ivo Dimchev, Chris Haring, Tino Sehgal, Doris Uhlich, Philipp Gehmacher, Meg Stuart, Florentina Holzinger, Annie Dorsen, Mette Ingvartsen, Anne Juren and Frédéric Gies. In 2022 the mentors will be Wim Vandekeybus and Nicola Schößler.
