12-Week Intensive Post-Graduate Programme

This programme is specially designed for unquestionably dedicated dancers with high ambitions to expand their skills and boost their career opportunities. The education is an individual specialization. You share the space, the context and the inspiration with a group of creative, determined and professional dance artists supporting each other in reaching your different goals whilst receiving the knowledge and tools to develop and manage your personal dance career. The core of the Post-Graduate Programme at CCDS is personal coaching.
