Diverse spectra of contemporary dance training are important. People who have not been teaching recently (since 2018) at TQW are prioritized.

Wiener Perspektive Training & Education working group emerged in 2017 as a working group within Wiener Perspektive (WP), at first to provide for self-organized training options during the closing period of TQW. In fluctuating constellations the T&E Group investigates into the needs, dreams and wishes of dance and performance practitioners on how education could be re-designed. Current active members: Alina Tretinjak, Charlotta Ruth, Samuel Feldhandler, Sara De Santis and K.T. Zakravsky.
