Paul McLinden returns to present for his 11th year!
Bolzano Danza/Tanz Bozen
International Dance Festival
19-31 July, 2021
For more than 35 years, students and young people from South Tyrol and all of Italy, from German-speaking Europe, from Luxembourg, France, Spain and even from the USA, have been pouring into Bozen at the end of July. Here they are offered the opportunity to learn dance, develop their movement skills and see the works of some of the greatest international choreographers onstage. The numbers speak for themselves: In 1985 the number of participants was 96. That number has grown to 900 participants in recent years! Over 400 choreographers from 5 continents have presented their work in Bolzano, thanks to the cooperation between the Haydn Foundation of Bolzano and Trento and the South Tyrolean Cultural Institute, which since 2003 has been responsible for planning and coordination.
