The Dance Academy Balance 1 offers two preparatory programs tailored to meet the needs and aspirations of passionate dancers.

Dance Intensive Program – 5 months

The Dance Intensive Program is desigend for you as a preparation for a dance education or if you dance regularly in your free time and you wish to deepen your technique and passion for dance in a supportive and encouraging environment. This Intensive expands your fundamentals in a variety of dance styles, including ballet, contemporary dance, and jazz dance.
So, if you are looking for an exquisite program to expand your personal potential in a safe environment and are looking for the opportunity to train exclusively in a closed group, we would like to welcome you to our 5-months Dance Intensive.
There is no age limit for this program and you do not have to audition. However, you should have previous dance experience and feel physically fit enough to sustain the rigors of the program.
The training takes place in the afternoon from 4:00 p.m. and can therefore be attended if you are still obliged to attend school as well as after work. The Intensive takes place twice a year, starting at the beginning of february and at the beginning of september.
We are curious about receiving your application!

You need to have dance-experience to apply, and you have to pass an audition for this opportunity!
