Course content

Internship is an optional course whereby a student may choose to engage in an internship with a company or choreographer. The student must apply, organise and communicate about all aspects of the internship and first get an agreement from the coordinators of the dance department before completing a contract with the company. An internship must fulfil a role in the student's artistic education and contribute to the shaping of their personal artistic vision. Students will be responsible for the organisation and running of the internship both in relation to the project itself and in relation to how this relates to the rest of the programme. Students must be motivated to do an internship because of an artistic interest that can be independently managed and will contribute to the students' development as a dance artist.
