DanceWEB summer program

DanceWEB Europe is a network of dancers, choreographers, dance companies etc. Every year, young dancers and choreographers active in contemporary dance can apply for participation in the month-long grant programme run by danceWEB in Vienna, Austria. The programme includes training, seminars, choreography projects and performances. Every year, the Swedish Arts Grants Committee awards one or a couple of grants to Swedish participants. The grants cover participation fees, accommodation and travel expenses.

The Enhanced danceWEB Europe Scholarship Programme for Contemporary Dance is a five-week programme that takes place in conjunction with the ImPulsTanz festival. Some fifty young dancers and choreographers, from primarily Europe but also from the rest of the world, participate each summer. The programme focuses on the exchange of ideas and knowledge across national borders, on concentrated training and further education and on encounters with internationally renowned dance artists at the ImPulzTanz festival. Each year the scholarship programme has a new artistic director and coach, recruited among, for example, choreographers that have played an important role in the recent development of contemporary dance.

The amount of the grants is approx. SEK 60,000/per person
The cost of the Swedish grant is shared by the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, the city of Vienna and the EU. The Swedish Arts Grants Committee also reimburses the costs for the Swedish participant’s travel expenses.

Application and decision
The application is made via danceWEB’s website. Here you will also find the application deadline. You do not need to send an application to the Swedish Arts Grants Committee.  The Swedish grants are allocated on recommendations by danceWEB.

If you are awarded a grant, you must, after the summer, submit a written report to the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, describing your participation. Send a letter marked “Redovisning av danceWEB-stipendium”. In the report we would like an account of your impressions of your stay in Vienna, experiences you have gained and what significance you believe your participation will have for your artistic practice. You may submit the same report as the one you submit to danceWEB in Austria.
