ZeroPlus DanceWorks announces entry into its Journey To The Center year-long contemporary dance training program!

Where: ZeroPlus Dance Studio, Budapest, Hungary

When: 16 September, 2019 – 14 June, 2020

Deadline for applications: 13 September, 2019

This is a complex training program for those who are on their way to becoming a professional contemporary dancer/performer. Are you interested in a deeper, multi-faceted approach to movement and dance? Do you want to complete your studies in a well-known higher education institution in the future and you want to be well prepared for that? Then you are in the right place, studying with us!

We use many different techniques, approaches, and disciplines to help you on your journey of becoming a powerful dancer/performer. Facilitating the development of individual skills and creativity is of utmost importance for us. During your studies we will encourage you to create your own dance, to find your own voice, discover your individuality through movement and performance. Instead of providing you with prefabricated answers, we will ask you to pose questions (above all to yourself), to investigate, research and experiment. You can take part in a deep workflow, surrounded by peers with a similar point of view, in a supportive atmosphere.

We await the applications of those who are 18 years old or older and who are already advanced in their dance studies.

The training program starts on the 16th of September, 2019 and ends on the 14th of June, 2020 (altogether 35 weeks). It consists of 2 semesters. There will be a break around Christmas /New Year and another shorter break during the spring.
