Intensive Course

The Intensive Course 2018 is held from 26 November till 14 December. 

For everyone who wants to get an overall impression of the program of the SNDO we organize an Intensive Course of 3 weeks. This Intensive Course is an addition to the regular BA course, designed for those who wish to refresh their ideas on choreography and / or who wish to prepare themselves for the SNDO auditions. 

The Intensive Course gives participants the opportunity to practice the art of dance making under the professional guidance of SNDO staff teachers and graduates. 

The classes covered during the course include Concept Development, Choreography, Movement Research and Art & Theory. The teachers of this year's Intensive Course include Esther Arribas, Fernando Belfiore, Andrea Zavala Folache, Bruno Listopad, Aitana Cordero, Susan Gibb, Florentina Holzinger and Joy Mariama Smith.
