2-4 year program of training before the next step in dance
Through intensive training and creation periods this dance program focuses on artistry, technique, creativity, sophistication and maturity. The program will have positive effects on a dancer’s confidence and abilities so each individual can successfully move forward with their career in the dance field.
Every student gets a personal mentor directly from the dance field. The education works in strong connection to one of Swedens international dance companies “Norrdans”. Former students have moved on to higher educations, young companies or professional apprenticeships in Norrdans. We also collaborate with IlYoung.
The education is in english.
