Dance Intensive

09.10.2023 – 05.07.2024
The Tanzfabrik Berlin is offering a nine-month Dance Intensive program for all those who would like to get more deeply involved into contemporary dance. Dance Intensive is a qualification program aimed at people who want to orient themselves in dance, further their dance training and / or prepare for auditions at various higher education programs and schools. Participants will have the chance to get more closely acquainted with the dance sector and gain insight into the various dance styles and genres. In this way, students can, among other things, lay the foundation for entering higher dance education directly, to prepare themselves for auditions at different institutions and schools. The program is conceived as to provide every participant individual attention and care, to strengthen their creative potential, so that they may successfully continue their dance education at the higher-level institutions. The program’s goal is to lay the fundamentals by teaching a wide range of styles and techniques while also working on the integrity of body, form, alignment, dynamics and musicality.
 For the training year 2023-2024, classes are generally held each week from Mon-Fri 12:00-15:00. These classes are compulsory and exclusively for the Dance Intensive participants*. In addition, further courses and performance projects of the Tanzfabrik's open course programme can be attended. The regular course programme includes the subjects Contemporary, Contemporary Ballet, Gaga, Improvisation, Movement Research, Axis Syllabus, African Dance, Contemporary Jazz, Yoga, Body-Mind Centering, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Butoh, Kleintechnique. 

The participants will be able to work and present their own work as well as being part of group projects which will be led by teachers of the program. The Dance Intensive-Program ends with a public showing on our studio stage. All participants will also be given full support in putting together their CVs and application for dance schools and colleges. In addition to regular class participation, the participants* receive an insight into everyday dance life and can attend the events of Tanzfabrik Berlin.
