STRUCTURE

3-YEAR EDUCATION PROGRAM CONTEMPORARY DANCE

Methods and focus
Our 3-year dance education program focuses on practical experience. You will learn techniques of classical ballet and contemporary dance. Established techniques like Graham, Limon, Cunningham as well as a solid knowledge of ballet are part of your training. Choreography and repertoire are important subjects. The theoretical part of training covers the subjects history of dance and dance theory, anatomy, dance and cultural management as well as theatre law. The education program supports the development and diversity of your personal artistic potential.

 

Structure of the program
Contemporary dance becomes a model of artistic innovative capacity. It does not see itself as being based on one technique or aesthetic form only, but draws on diversity. It seeks crossing lines between the arts and frequently breaks with existing forms. The open structure of the training programme deliberately seeks the non-set way and thus offers the active opportunity to set itself apart from linear demands that exist in classical and modern dance. Training enables you to learn the different dance techniques including their approaches to movement and to examine them. In the final semester all the students will be prepared for auditions. There are numerous opportunities to gain stage experience during the dance training and to develop these abilities further during the three-year program. Stage experience and experience in choreographical practice will be promoted while working at our school. Our teachers, as well as established guest choreographers support our school performances.
