The dance WEB Scholarship Program 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 around 65 young professional dancers and choreographers from mainly European but also from non European countries the possibility to take part in an intense multinational further training programme. 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 in Vienna at ImPulsTanz with the aim to orient the career of the participants. In order to achieve both its educational and artistic goals, the Scholarship Program is supervised 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. Over 1000 young professional dancers and choreographers from over 87 countries have been part of this programme since its creation in 1996.
