Vibra started in 2013 as summer dance workshops program offering workshops in the field of contemporary dance, contemporary ballet and classical ballet with Slovene and foreign pedagogues. The workshops are both practical and theoretical. During 3 editions Vibra was hosting contemporary dance techniques, Akram Khan repertory workshop, choreography workshops, theory and dance analysis, partnering, contemporary ballet and classical ballet classes, mentoring for young dancers and other workshops and events. the artistic director of Vibra is Magdalena Reiter.
Vibra arose from the need to create a platform for the meeting between young dancers of different dance genres and other lovers of dance. Right from the start it became a popular event in Slovenia’s capital, gathers young dancers. Every year the program is upgraded and expanded, putting focus on training, creation and theory. In the last two editions of the festival training scholarships were given to young dancers from around the world.
Due to covid-19 pandemics in 2020 the festival was held online. One of the projects realised during the online edition was a dance movie Walls, directed by the renowned Slovenian film director, Janez Burger. Since 2021 Vibra has been temporarily put on hold.
