Basis Program

In addition to our 9-month Dance Education the Dance Program, motion*s dance studio Berlin offers a 6-month part-time intensive course in dance, starting August 2020.

The Basis Program is for people who want to integrate dance more into their lives – in addition to work or study. We offer you training in a closed group on two days as well as access to the entire weekly schedule of the motion*s Tanz- und Bewegungstudio with about 50 different classes per week.

Designed for people who simply enjoy dancing, as well as for already active artists from other areas of the performing arts who want to integrate dance into their artistic expression. Likewise, the basis program can be an introduction to the large field of body therapy / bodywork or an addition to an education in this area.

Previous experience in dance and movement is always helpful, but unlike our 9-month dance program is not required. For dancers who want to pursue a career as professional dancers, there is the motion*s Dance Program in preparation for further dance studies and a career in dance.


The diversity of the Basis Program covers the span from urban dance to contemporary dance. Hip Hop, African Dance, Contemporary, Jazz, Healthy Ballet, Alignment, Tribal Fusion, Contact, Freestyle and Improvisation techniques will be part of your training.


The Basis Program lasts 6 months and runs from August 2020 to February 2021. Training starts on Monday, August 31st 2020.
At the end of the Basis Program there will be a Showcase of the participants for friends and family. The following week we’ll have personal individual feedback sessions with each participant.


Total costs will be 1740€ (incl. VAT)
Can be paid in 6 installments of 290€ (incl. VAT)

25 € for the audition workshop which has to be paid beforehand.


To get to know each other and for you to get a feel for the basic program, there are two audition workshops. Please chose one of the following dates:
1) Sunday July 12th 2020
2) Saturday August 8 2020
An audition fee of 25 € will be charged beforehand. Detailed information will be given with the audition confirmation email after your registration.
This does not guarantee the participation in the program neither from our side nor from your side, this decision and finally the conclusion of the contract takes place in the days after.
The workshop will take place at motion*s in Berlin . Details about this workshop will be sent to you by e-mail after registration.
Participation in a recording workshop is mandatory. For registration please use the form below on this page.

Online Audition

This year we offer you the possibility of an online audition!

Here’s how it works:
  1.  You fill in the registration form on our website and type “online” as an audition date.
  2.  You will receive an e-mail with the information to transfer of the audition fee of 25 €.
  3.  You submit the following videos online (WeTransfer, Vimeo, YouTube):
    – two or more short videos (min. 1 minute each) in which you dance. Show your versatility and passion!
    – a short “self-interview video” in which you will tell you why you want to participate in the BASIS PROGRAM: your motivation, your goals, why exactly this program, etc.
  4.  After receiving your videos, we will send you a video with a choreography that you study and film. And that’s it!

Nevertheless, participating in one of the audition workshops allows you to get to know us and the other applicants directly. Therefore, we recommend that you attend one of the two workshops if possible.
By the way, the audition fee of 25€ is the same for both options.
