Preparatory Course Dance

The Dance degree offers a five-year preparatory course for students aged 10* to 15 years old. The objective is early and extensive training of students with exceptional physical and artistic talent before they start studying for the BA Contemporary Dance and Ballet. The central artistic subject is classical dance. Other complementary subjects (contemporary dance, improvisation, repertoire, artistic project work, acrobatics, gymnastics, rhythm, historical dance and character dance) ensure holistic dance and artistic preparation for professional studies.
