ABOUT THE STUDENTS
The students at CCDS is an international group, representing over 20 nationalities from all over the world. The teaching language is English. The international profile of the school provides a great network for students and alumni.
The 1-year post programme program really encouraged me to develop my individuality, further my artistic choices while maintaining and strengthening my foundation. I am very fortunate to have been able to experience this opportunity to its fullest and moving forward I will always think fondly of my time in CCDS and Copenhagen."
I got so much help from the school and also from my friends and colleague. The support we have for each other gives an enormous amount of inspiration, motivation and of course lots of joy and fun.
One of the trickiest parts in the beginning was having to adapt to the rapid changes of classes. We had a lots of different teachers and choreographers coming from all over the world basically every month and each one of them worked in very different ways. I was not used to this at all and with my stubborn character I had to fight with myself and learn to adapt and overcome my initial mindset.
Teachers who I had the honor to spend time in the studio were always very nice. At CCDS there was a calm and friendly atmosphere all the time. I am glad I could be part of this family!
I have grown a lot and become an confident and strong dancer and are currently working in Shaden Dance Company (Israel)
Teachers are so focused on their work, that creates new dancers, new artists and a new generation of great performers. I love the way they also leave space to you to reflect about yourself, about what and who you want to be. They spend so much time to listen to you, to hear what you want to say. This is such a good thing!
My goals after this education are to become a professional dancer, because I want to show the biggest part of my heart that during my studies has became full of love for dancing and because I can communicate who I am, what I love, what I want to do, but in a language made of movements."
TESTIMONIALS FROM SOME OF OUR GRADUATES
Rachel Laird (UK), 11-Week Postgraduate programme
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.

Amélie Roch, 3-Year Diploma Programme
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.
