European Dance Companies

By 2023.09.18.No Comments

Dear Students!

Below you can find a curated Excel table of dance companies that provides a comprehensive overview of various dance organizations from all around Europe.

This table systematically categorizes these companies based on criteria such as:

  • size: number of Dancers employed
  • location: Country and City
  • repertoire: classical – CL, neoclassical – NCL, contemporary – CON
  • second company: – SC (youth, junior company, or apprentice program)
  • project-based company: – P (may not operate or offer company classes on a daily basis)

Utilize the filters located at the top of each column for more efficient searching.

We aspire for this list to grow and remain consistently up-to-date, so we kindly ask for your contribution. If you know any other companies not listed, encounter broken links, or identify inaccuracies in the criteria, please send us an email at:

With Love,

Tamás Darai and the Career Office
