3-Year Diploma Programme
The finest task of Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School is to support the international group of highly ambitious dancers who wish to develop their full potential, gain profound technical and artistic skills and knowlegde and attain a long and distinguished career as company- or freelance dancer internationally.
The school has a strong focus on physical ability in relation to artistic and mental reflection. This combination gives the students the opportunity to on the one hand immerse themselves in dance as a craft and on the other to use the school as a creative point of departure for the future.
