The programme mainly consists of three perspectives that contain theory and practice: the dancer and physical skills, the dancer and performative aspects, and the dancer and the art/choreography/the creative process.
In daily training, you will develop physical and technical dance skills. Through training in subjects such as ballet, contemporary dance, improvisation, yoga and somatic practices, you will develop the awareness of your body that you will need in order to articulate yourself through movement.
Understanding of what you communicate on and from a stage will be developed through continually performing in front of an audience. By being observed, both within and outside traditional performance venues, your approach to performative work will be developed and deepened. The programme also offers you tools for combining analytical theoretical work with physical expression.
The programme places a great deal of emphasis on creation, and you will work both individually and in collective processes. The focuses of the programme include developing knowledge of artistic methods, the ability to articulate your ideas, project development and various forms of presentation. While working on your own project you will also learn how you can administrate your own future work activities.
