During the International Dance Weeks, Internationale Tanzwochen, outstanding performers have been demonstrating the enormous variety of the expressive power of dance. Since 1983, contemporary dance companies from many regions of the world have been performing in front of packed audiences in Neuss on the stage of the Stadthalle.

Productions each season vary in style and origin from such places as the US, Canada, the Caribbean, South America, UK and other European countries or Asia. Dance troupes are often brought together especially for this occasion.

Tradition and longevity

The event still keeps its crisp flavour of freshness with a combination of international and national performances. In addition to engaging world-famous groups, the organisers have often revealed a discerning eye for rising shooting stars of the dance scene.

Northrhine-Westfalia is a state of dance culture lovers and this series is extremely popular, attracting its public from near and far. The event plays an extremely important role for the city of Neuss and is well established in the intimate circuit of desirable global locations for such performances.
