FAÍCC 10th edition is a 21 weeks​ i​ntensive program​ with a strong practical component – that includes contemporary body techniques and creation/ presentation projects – the course offers the students a wide knowledge for those who are seeking professionalization in contemporary dance creation or interpretation. Designed in a modular structure, national and international tutors and creators with different backgrounds are invited for the traineeship, so that the students can have contact with multiple techniques and methodologies.

This course allows for the development of a performer that is also creative, promoting individual work as an interrogative practice and an act of collaboration, in dialogue with other artists and colleagues. The focus of this course lies in the evolutionary process of the participants, since there is space for the construction of individual or co-created creations, cocreated pieces ou works ou choreographies and the possibility for those to be presented.
