1-4 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 will get direct access to performance- and career coaching with Coco Regina, known from TAW (The Audition Workshop).

In depth focus on the course Dance and Film, taught by the established choreographer Helena Franzén and filmmaker, photographer and scenographer Håkan Jelk. Ongoing course with the camera and editing programs will be led by Mathieu Hebeisen.

Unmissable to the education is the strong connection with ilDance yearly workshops and choreographic projects with Israel Aloni and Lee Brummer as well as the possibility to audition for their young company ilYoung.

The coming study year will start with a circus course on the slack rope, to learn how to accept being off balance and negotiate ‘balancing’. This course will be taught by former student of NEFCD and currently last year student at Artesis, Antwerp, Ella-My Blomdahl.
