Contemporary dance - Stage dance/Performance/Pedagogy

The principal studies are classical ballet and contemporary dance. These teach the techniques of dance and include scientifically based knowledge and skills derived from training theory. Technical learning processes are closely integrated with artistic processes, especially in the interpretation of a diverse repertoire and in the students' own creations. Dance pedagogy is built up on a modular system and combines artistic and pedagogical content.
