About Urban Contemporary (JMD)
At Urban Contemprary (JMD) we teach  our students to master a variety of dance techniques – from classical ballet to hip hop. Our competence-focused teaching will help them discover their distinctive stage identity. As well as training and dancing, singing and acting skills, we pay close attention to the creativity and quality of the students' performance as they develop ability to collaborate, take initiative and reflect on their own work.

This programme is all about dance, and we take our students' creative development as a distinctive performer as our starting point. We challenge them to develop their unique talent. In daily classes we’ll hone dancing, singing and acting skills to a professional level.
The professional practice of musical theatre, contemporary dance and urban jazz is constantly evolving, and we tune our students' training to the latest developments. Tutors will help them define some of their personal training objectives, using learning and development guidelines.

New study programme in 2019-2020
The Urban Contemporary (JMD) and Modern Theater Dance courses will form a  new dance study programme from 2019-2020. Current UC/JMD students will complete their education in the next four years within the existing curriculum. In June they will perform in an exciting final show. They can also be seen in various performances throughout the school year. Keep an eye on the agenda on this website!
