1-4 year program of training before the next step in dance

Through intensive training and creation periods this dance program focuses on artistry, technique, creativity, sophistication and maturity. The program will have positive effects on a dancer’s confidence and abilities so each individual can successfully move forward with their career in the dance field.

Every student will get direct access to performance- and career coaching with Coco Regina, known from TAW (The Audition Workshop).

NEW for the study year 2021/2022!!

In depth focus on the course Dance and Film, taught by the established choreographer Helena Franzén and filmmaker, photographer and scenographer Håkan Jelk. Ongoing course with the camera and editing programs will be led by Mathieu Hebeisen.

Unmissable to the education is the strong connection with ilDance yearly workshops and choreographic projects with Israel Aloni and Lee Brummer as well as the possibility to audition for their young company ilYoung.

The coming study year will start with a circus course on the slack rope, to learn how to accept being off balance and negotiate ‘balancing’.

We also operate in connection with one of Swedens international dance companies “Norrdans”.

Former students have moved on to higher educations, young companies or professional apprenticeships in Norrdans.

An extremely high rate of previous students continue within dance; they will be found in Artesis(Antwerp), SEAD (Salzburg), Fontys(Tilburg, The Netherlands), Pera(Cyprus), Expanded Contemporary Dance(Amsterdam), London Contemporary Dance School, Artez(Arnhem,The Netherlands), DOCH (Stockholm), Ballet Academy (Stockholm) and Anton Bruckner Privat Universität (Linz).

The education is in english.

Course objectiv

The program will give you the best possible conditions for continuing with your career in the dance field.
Today’s dancefield needs dancers that are independent artists (dancer/maker): 
-Artists that are equipped with tools to support a creative process with a                
choreographer (both on a technical and on a creative level).
-Artists that are equipped with tools to create their own works.
-Artists that are equipped with tools to reflect and discuss around the contemporary dance in relation to the arts and to our surrounding world.

In the program you also get help with contacts to higher education in and outside of Sweden.
