During their education students acquire various dance genres as well as forms and stylistic components of dance techniques related to theatrical dance (tap, contemporary dance, ballroom dance, jazz, musical, operetta, musical acting, voice-training etc.) The programme also comprises the basic procedures in dance, music and theatre history, and their impact on contemporary art. They learn about and practise the basics of leading rehearsal, interpreting and analysing within the group. By learning the choreographies of original musicals and contemporary dance pieces, students get immediate insight into music-theatrical genres. The programme ends in the sixth semester with a thesis, a theoretic and a stage practice exam.
