The three-year training cycle enables Applicants to step on the path of becoming professional contemporary dancers. In regard to the pedagogical and artistic specificities of contemporary dance when it comes to ways of thinking about dance and dance learning we believe it is essential to provide space for a complex approach.

The course aims to create a diverse learning environment for acquiring dance (experiential, practical and theoretical), offers tools for exploring one’s creativity, helps in finding a solid base for practice of performing and creation, and cultivates personal and artistic reflectivity. These areas and pedagogical directions interweave and make the container for the learning processes and the program of the course.

The versatile training program is supported by a developmental approach through exploring various techniques and methods of dance and the moving body. Including developing technical skills, refining physical abilities, working with movement skills development and body awareness, and creating contexts for integrated theory and practice.

To assist and nourish the individual and artistic growth of our students we seek balance between individual and group learning processes, rely on a complex assessment system, use methods that promote reflectivity, and provide the ground to raise knowledge to earn a BA degree in contemporary dance at the end of their studies.
Our students gain transferable knowledge by being part of a creative community under the guidance of national and international teachers and artists.

We believe that curiosity, courage and dedication are fundamental to shape one’s self-image as a performer or creator, as well as sensitivity and openness to social and cultural contexts.

The focus of creativity and practice opens the floor for the study of traditional and innovative dance techniques, to develop an experimental, research-based practice for making work and to find a unique and authentic performing voice as a performer. The agenda of the course is carried out within the framework of dance classes, integrated theory and practice, individual and group work, research and creative projects, rehearsals, presentations and performances.
