EDUCATION & CREATION
Professional Dance Training
This is a complex training program for all those who:
are on their way to become a professional contemporary dancer or performer
want to prepare for higher education studies in dance
consider self-knowledge and high-level movement quality important in their current or future profession (dance therapists, followers of other art forms and sports etc.)
We use many different techniques, approaches and disciplines to help you on your journey. In our courses, the development of technical knowledge is also based on somatic approaches. Technique classes such as Ballet, Contemporary Dance and somatic classes such as Body Awareness Dance, Contact Improvisation mutually support each other. They are like the two legs of a person, the two sides of a brain – and awareness is the bridge. Facilitating the development of individual skills and creativity is of utmost importance for us. During your studies we will encourage you to create your own dance, to find your own voice, discover your individuality through movement and performance. Instead of providing you with prefabricated answers, we will ask you to pose questions (above all to yourself), to investigate, research and experiment. You can take part in a deep workflow, surrounded by peers with a similar point of view, in a supportive atmosphere.

Student of 2016/2017
The ZeroPlusz Somatic Course has given me new avenues through which to explore movement, a renewed appreciation for patience in approaching training, and a deepened awareness and understanding of my body's movement. I am more in touch with my bones, my breath, my organs. The teachers are empathetic and kind, with an ear to each individual's process. This experience has been unquestionably valuable and has contributed immensely to my practice as a performer.
