Basis Program Spring - motion*s

Openstage 2023 Kursperformance choreografiert von Valentina Radman. Video: Nik Goetz

Basis Program Spring *4 Month*

The Basic Program and the Basic Program Spring are for people who want to integrate dance more strongly into their lives – alongside their job or studies – and who want to engage more with their body and their personal dance strength.

It is designed for people who simply enjoy dance as well as for already active performance artists from other areas of the performing arts. The Basic Program can also be an introduction to the large field of body therapy/body work or an extension to training in this area.

Previous experience in dance and movement is always helpful, but unlike our 10-month Dance Program, it is not required. Classes take place in closed groups two days a week and you also have access to the entire weekly motion* schedule.

Like the Dance Program, the variety of styles in the Basic Program also covers the range from urban dance to contemporary dance. Hip hop, afro, contemporary, jazz, healthy ballet, alignment, tribal fusion, contact improv, freestyle and improvisation techniques are included.

For dancers who would like to pursue a career as a professional dancer, the Dance Program is available as preparation for studies, for example.


The Basic Program Spring runs from March 11 – July 14, 2024.


Classes in a fixed group
You can expect closed group lessons two days a week. You will also have access to 7 classes of the entire weekly motion* schedule. Classes are held in English and German.

Evening Classes
In addition, at least 4 motion*s classes per week should be attended, preferably more. Up to 7 open classes per week are included in the price for participants of the Basic Program Spring in our motion*s dance and movement studios in the period from March 11 – July 14, 2024.

In order to get to know you, we organize recording workshops. To register, please use the form at the bottom of this page. You will receive further information in your confirmation email.
Please register for one of the dates:

Online Audition

This year we are offering you the possibility of an online audition!

This is how it works:
  1. Fill out the regular registration form on our website and enter “online” as the audition date.
  2. You will receive feedback with information on how to transfer the processing fee of €25.
  3. Submit the following videos online (Vimeo, YouTube, etc.):
    – Two or more short videos (min. 1 minute each) in which you dance. Show your versatility and your passion!
    – a short “self-interview video” in which you tell us something about why you want to take part in the BASIS PROGRAM SPRING: your motivation, your goals, why exactly this program …

Nevertheless, participating in one of the audition workshops allows you to get to know us and the other applicants directly. We therefore still recommend that you attend one of the two new audition dates if possible. The processing fee of €25 is the same for both options.

Please do not send us any video files, but upload them to a platform of your choice (e.g. Vimeo, Youtube, Google Drive etc.).


The costs amount to a total of 1460€ (incl. VAT)
Also payable in 4 installments of 365€ (incl. VAT)

One-off processing fee of €25 (incl. VAT)
