Dance & Music
Mozart and high culture are one side of Salzburg. The other side brings you modern street dance and hip-hop festivals. Aside from showcases like "sommerszene" and "Winterfest", a series of smaller yet quite exceptional events promise an exciting year-round program.
Modern Dance in Salzburg
The 1980s saw the birth of a modern and independent contemporary dance scene in Salzburg. This was quickly accompanied by brand-new expectations and the need for new presentation spaces. Established dance companies such as the "Editta Braun Company" as well as the "tanz_house" and "Tanzimpulse" associations guarantee a constant forward momentum. And thanks to SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance), since 1993 the city has also boasted a first-class dance-training institution.
Hip-hop in the streets of the city
In recent years, a really vibrant hip-hop dance scene has developed here. With most of the dancers completing their training at the Salzburg StreetDanceCenter. We have witnessed the emergence of a number of dance formations such as "Nobulus", associations such as "Urban Foundation" and concepts like "HipHop Goes Theater".
