The contactfestival freiburg is an annual event, which supports and facilitates an international exchange of the dance form Contact Improvisation.

It offers a group of about 250 participants the opportunity to dive into an intensive weeklong process to explore the dance form. During the days in the classes and workshops, as well as in the evenings in the less structured jams, you'll be able to discover, question and digest the learning experience. 
With more than 20 international teachers, supported by many former teachers, you will find a lively exchange between the lecturers and learners.

The Festival gathers people of different cultures and backgrounds. Its ethic is based on principles and goals that identify it to its core: love, care, respect for diversity and differences, participation and self-responsibility.
Based on respect and non-discrimination of people regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, social, national, religious, racial, ethnic, economic, and/or physical characteristics, the Festival aims to create a supportive atmosphere driven by tolerance, inclusion and a mindful and respectful approach.

With the wish to make the Festival affordable to everyone, we offer work exchange opportunities for those people who are in need of financial support. Workexchange places are limited.
