Curriculum

 

 

Within the programme there are three main strands of practices that intertwine; technique, theory and creative process and running concurrently is a strand focusing on the sustainability of the artist. Big emphasis is on fostering and developing critical thinking of the students. The programme provides a rigorous training in different styles of contemporary techniques and improvisation, supported by ballet for contemporary dancers and somatic practices. The creative practice departs from a personal viewpoint based on critical approach to both theory and practice. The aim is to explore new territories, expand the movement vocabulary and strengthen critical reflection and contextual awareness towards dance and choreography.

In the third year the students go into more specialized studies, with self-organized study plans.
