Fontys Dance Academy offers a 4 year full-time study program that gives young dance artists and makers the education to develop their own signature and create their own performance work. Our three flagship profiles: Dance Arts in Context, Contemporary Urban, and Bachelor in Choreography enable students to explore contemporary dance practices and techniques with a view to collaborating with different art forms to make performance work that is innovative, challenging and exciting. Content of the programme The Bachelor Dance is a four-year course with a strong focus on talent development, the physical aspects of dancing, the creative aspects of the art of dance, the link with the professional world and with society, as well as on cross-curricular projects. Already at an early stage you will come into contact with the professional career field. You attend classes and you carry out assignments, individually and as a member of a team. We have many international partnerships and the language of instruction is English. Thus you will be optimally prepared to enter the international career field.

What to expect from us

We place our students at the centre of a fantastic team of teachers and choreographers, in exceptional training facilities, alongside 14 other art schools ranging from Circus and Architecture to Visual Arts and Music. Authentic, curious and distinctive dance artists work in an inclusive learning environment, where individual growth and co-operative exploration are equally prized.

Practical work is underpinned by an extensive and rigorous training and research programme that includes a wide range of performance and movement practices. We educate our students to create, think and produce collaboratively. They become dance makers and dance leaders who have their own voice, who take ownership of their own careers and who go on to take up meaningful positions throughout both the performing arts field and wider society.

What do we expect from you

Our students are the creators of and performers in their own work. They also perform in and contribute meaningfully to the work of others. We specifically appreciate students who challenge our ideas of what a dance artist is. We want hard-working, bright-thinking dancers from different backgrounds with an urgent interest in creative, playful, conceptual and resonant dance making.
