Dance is the hidden language of the soul

Summer Course

If you can’t get enough of dancing, want to tryout dance in a short course or you want to keep in form as a professional, there is a special summer course. The summer course starts in July. The last lesson is in August. You can also choose to take single classes, if you are going on a holiday. During the summer there are two levels: beginner/intermediate and fast intermediate/advanced. It’s also possible to combine different classes. All classes are in English.

Summer course 2021: Four weeks of dancing! Wednesday June 30 till Wednesday July 21.

Corona update! Group classes are allowed back in the studio! Further more dance is one of the exceptions on the 1,5 meter rule. We don’t have to keep distance during class, only before and after class. That is great news and means the summer course can definitely take place! But the summer course will be a bit different this year. Because of the prolonged lock-down and the uncertain situation we had, the course this year will take 4 weeks only (instead of 6). Also there will be classes only once a week (instead of twice) for all levels together. The teacher will give options for each level within the exercises. Read more about the corona measures in the terms and conditions.

Dance info

Ballet is an elegant dance style originated in the Italian Renaissance. Ballet technique forms the base for many other dance styles. The classes at Talvandansen are largely based on the Vaganova Method, combined with current insights.

The class starts with a technical warming up at the barre. Followed by exercises through space to further develop your technique and feel of the style. Dance combinations and ballet repertoire will develop your musicality, dynamics and presentation.

Fast Intermediate /Advanced
This class is suitable for students with longer dance experience: advanced amateurs, semi-professionals and professionals. Fast-paced lessons with particular attention for technical training, stamina and learning capacity through long dance combinations. The class is also suitable as preparation for auditions.

For absolute beginners, intermediate students with only few years training, or if you danced as a child and wish to return to dancing after long pause. Lessons in a relaxed environment. Discover the pleasure of dancing while you develop your technical skills, posture and musicality.

Modern or Contemporary dance is the umbrella term for dance techniques originated at the beginning of the 20th century. But new contemporary dance techniques are still being developed. Each teacher is giving his/her class a different flavor by combining various music styles and dance techniques. The key elements of Modern dance are: the use of gravity, dynamics, flow and breath.

Fast Intermediate/Advanced
