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 knowledge and attain a long and distinguished career as company- or freelance dancer and artist internationally.

This combination gives the students the opportunity to both immerse themselves in dance as a craft and to use Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School as a creative and network building point of departure for the future.

The goal of the 3-year Diploma Programme at CCDS is for the students to develop into highly skilled and aware dancers who can take full charge of their own development and handle their careers as professional dancers and artists for a long career in the future.

Structure of a typical week:

In a typical week (Monday-Friday) students are expected to work 4-6 hours per day and dedicate 2 hours per day for individual optimization of their body potential, research, management and for self-studies. Some weeks are dedicated fully to a workshop or rehearsals, others are organized as classes. During periods of productions at Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School, performances and rehearsals can take place in evenings and weekends.

Every school year the students take part in several public productions. Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School collaborates with a number of choreographers, cultural institutions and organisations. Collaborators are for example choreographers such as Gustavo Ramirez Sansano (ES), Mauro Astolfi (IT), Adi Salant (IL) and Tamas Moricz (BE). To see more, please visit our website: https://www.cph-dance.com/teachers/.

Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School has performed at The National Gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen Music Theater, Ministry of Culture, Royal Cast Collection, Østre Gasværk Theatre, Royal Danish Ballet, Nimb in Tivoli, The National Museum, The Cisterns as well as a long list of sight specific performances.

The Diploma Programme includes individual coaching and mentoring of the students to optimize their artistic and technical development to the fullest. CCDS has a strong focus on melting education in safe frames with reality and a strong focus on preparing the students the best possible way for the world they will most likely meet as a professional dancer. In this profession daily life working with different people of different ages, cultures, backgrounds and different experiences is a very realistic scenario. Therefore, the students of CCDS will have a lot of classes together across the first, second and third years. It means a lot to us that the students feel responsible for their own development – we are here to guide the students both technically, artistically but definitely also in finding the most constructive and efficient learning process where they at the end are extremely independent. Working tasks and expectations depend on the level of experience of the individual student.


By the end of every semester (Winter and Summer) there will be an exam followed by individual feedback.
