Under the leadership of some of the foremost educators and dancers in Sweden, you will explore your own choreographic language as well as dance technique and musicality.  

Classes in contemporary, ballet, jazz and street as well as rhythm and choreography provide a good foundation for applying to higher dance education in Sweden or internationally. To prepare for this we provide audition training with an external professional jury.
