The famous dance festival in July is one of the highlights of the Bolzano Summer of Culture.
In the second half of July, Bolzano (Bozen) becomes a dance stage: International stars and dance enthusiasts then meet at the Municipal Theatre of Bolzano on the Piazza Verdi square or - open air - in the newly designed Capuchin Garden to enjoy the sophisticated performances. In 2020, the project "Eden" was awarded a prize, in which dancer Annie Hanauer danced solo for a single guest when culture had to pause in times of the pandemic. Rachid's choreography received the Special Award 2020 of the renowned Italian professional journal Danza&Danza.
The performance programme with international dancers and dance companies has already made Bolzano Danza - Tanz Bozen an important event in the European dance scene in recent years. An extensive programme of courses rounds off the festival: There are special workshops for children and for advanced dancers in flamenco, hip hop and modern dance. Experienced dance teachers from all over the world come to Bolzano during the two weeks in July.
