Some of our graduates
Rachel Laird (UK) was postgraduate Autumn 2018.
My time at the Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School was more than I could have wished for. It was the perfect transition period, for me, after completing my BA (HONS) at Laban. The Post Graduate Diploma bridged the gap between being a full time dance student and shifting into a professional contemporary dancer. Space and time was given where we could discover what we wanted from the course and what specific avenues we, as individuals, wanted to go down.

Linn Fletcher, 3-Year Diploma Programme 2017-2020.
It wasn’t until sometime after I graduated from the program that I realized how much I’ve learnt during my time at CCDS. The program gave me a lot of space to individually work on myself and to be able to take my own responsibility in getting the most out of the program. Of course it was challenging at times, but through great mentoring and the personal connection I developed with Lotte and Morten, I have grown to be the independent, strong and confident dancer that I am today.

Amélie Roch, 3-Year Diploma Programme 2017-2019.
The years spent in Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School are a time I cherish dearly. The Diploma programme helped me transition from my more theory oriented Bachelor in Performing Arts in Strasbourg, France and gave me the diversified technical training I aimed for. The many opportunities and lessons allowed me to broaden my artistic universe while giving me space to fully discover and accomplish my own potential. I made lifelong friendships and always felt encouraged by my peers to experiment and express myself freely.
