Degree Programmes

Bachelor of Arts – Dance


The students get to know dance as a comprehensive process. Lectures, seminars, practical training, artistic projects and excursions expand the students’ dancing capabilities and help them acquire theoretical and practical knowledge about dance and art, dance and architecture, as well as dance and film. This includes historical, perceptual, analytical, medical, organisational and media aspects.

The students are taught by international guest teachers and choreographers. The course places exceptional value on the close connection between the artistic and practical experience. Therefore students receive already during the course of study numerous possibilities to perform before an audience.
