Top course for anyone wanting to be a dance artist

In this age, it is more important than ever for a dance artist to be firmly based in a dance world that is always developing. At the top Dance Artist course at ArtEZ, you are trained as a (co)creating dancer and maker. Key to this is the development and embodiment of your own (artistic) identity as a dance artist. At the same time, your curiosity about other makers and your surroundings is nurtured: there is a lot of scope for collaborations and projects. After graduating as a Dance Artist in Arnhem, you may use the title Bachelor of Arts (BA). You can work independently as a dancer and maker at home and abroad for (inter)national production houses and dance companies.

"We train our students to become dance artists who stand in the world, are engaged and respond to what is happening around them. These are performers who (co)create or make their own (interdisciplinary) performances."
