The program

The nine-months intensive dance program is aimed at participants with previous dance experience who want to develop their abilities by practicing a wide range of dance techniques. If you want to become a professional dancer, you will get a thorough insight into the opportunities as well as the challenges that this unique career path has to offer. This course also welcomes those who are not planning on working professionally, but who are looking to diversify their knowledge and deepen their experience in the art of movement. If you have the desire to make dance a central part of your everyday life, this is the program for you.


More than just dance technique

In addition to jazz, contemporary, ballet and tribal dance techniques, this program also focuses on urban dance styles, a rarity in Berlin. Participants experience the multicultural language of dance and have the chance to develop a wide range of skills including body toning, physical endurance and flexibility. Students are also trained to rely on their own perception, expression and understanding of musicality. In turn, these practices strengthen the students’ stage presence and allow them to experiment and enhance their artistic vision in improvisation as well as in creating choreographies.


Individual support and coaching

The comprehensive physical training is complemented by theoretical instruction led by a team of professionals who provide a holistic insight into the life of a professional dancer. The program provides a supportive and safe environment within the dance community that allows participants to discover and build upon their own creativity and individual potential. This, of course, requires your own motivation and willingness for personal development.
