  • The Future

    Dance and choreography are expansive fields that operate in an international context. The powerful development in the art field means that the conditions for a professional dance artist are constantly changing. To meet these challenges, we want to strengthen the students' environmental analysis, independence and artistic awareness.

    Our goal in dance pedagogy is to train creative educators who are equipped to face a constantly changing professional life and who can drive the field of dance and dance education forward. Many former students work directly in various dance education organisations or have created artistic collectives and companies that work with dance both scenically and pedagogically, in various contexts.
