The profession as dance teacher is constantly changing. Our aim is to educate creative teachers who are well prepared to meet a constantly changing professional life and who can contribute to the further development of the field of dance and dance teaching. Because of that there are lots of opportunities within dance teaching to work with dance and creativity in different ways. Many of our former students have formed artistic collectives and companies working with dance, both on stage and pedagogically, in many different contexts.
