Entering the experience of excellence in dance

The BIBLIOTECA DO CORPO® education project was developed by international choreographer Ismael Ivo as a special method to coach and train young professionals individually and allow them to reach their personal level of excellence as dancers and artists. For more than five weeks in summer, the students will gather in Vienna, Austria and Zurich, Switzerland. Within the frame of the prestigious ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival, they will train and research, rehearse and create – in the most outstanding dance studios of Europe. Part of the education project is creating a performance choreographed and directed by Ismael Ivo. Before the actual start of the Vienna experience, the students go through an intensive phase of individual coaching at the renowned Tanzwerk101 – Professional College for Contemporary and Urban Dance Zurich. Artistic director Ismael Ivo, the teachers and assistants guarantee the highest standards of education.
