The aim of the Bachelor's degree programme in Dance (BAdance) is the training and individual advancement of creative, expressive dancer personalities who possess a wide range of dance techniques in both the classical and contemporary fields and can apply their qualities with confidence. They have developed the ability to creatively shape artistic work processes and are able to reflect on themselves and the art form of dance in an interdisciplinary as well as in a historical and social context. In the course of their studies, students are encouraged and supported to develop social and political commitment, to contribute to groups in a self-confident and responsible manner and to positively shape group processes.
Graduates of the Bachelor's degree programme in Dance are qualified to work as dancers in the professional field and have developed a good basis to work with an additional qualification as a dance teacher, as a choreographer, as a training leader, as well as in body and movement therapy and to transfer their knowledge to other fields.
The training model rests on 7 interconnected pillars (see module manual) and leads from a parallel to an integral training: technique, creativity, body awareness, theory, project work, interdisciplinarity, performances.
