Course information

Our new course Health and sustainability in Dance offers you the opportunity to reflect on and formulate your teaching/coaching, through the course's themes such as leadership, feedback, lecture design and research-based learning in dance/classical ballet.

The collegial exchange between the course participants is given a lot of space and gives you the chance to create networks, share your experience and learn from others!

The course is for you who have a solid education and professional experience in classical ballet, who are looking for opportunities to discuss the dance tradition in relation to the present/future, as well as who want to express themselves about sustainability and health within the field, and share and develop methods for teaching/distributing ballet.

Half the course is focused on your own practice, i.e. your teaching/dance context, where you try to implement the course content as well as process your experiences into a basis for your portfolio.

The course is held in English and is possible! to search internationally.

The course is independent with a collaboration with GIH (Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences), which during the autumn of 2022 conducts two profile courses for the same target group in dance psychology, anatomy and physiology.

  • Application and tuition fees

    If you are a Swedish citizen or a citizen of another EU or EEA country you are not required to pay application or tuition fees. Some other groups are also exempt from the requirement to pay application and study fees.

    A few years ago Sweden introduced application and tuition fees for higher education. The level of the study fees depends on which course/programme they are for, and the level is set in order to cover the actual costs of the course/programme in question. SKH has some possibilities of offering scholarships that cover the whole study fee or that subsidise it.

    If you are required to pay an application fee, the Swedish Council for Higher Education needs to receive your payment by the last date forpaying the tuition fee. The application fee is SEK 900. If you are required to pay the application fee and the Swedish Council for Higher Education has not received your payment by the last date for paying the tuition fee, they will not process your application.

    The tuition fee is 97500 SEK for non EU/EES students.
