We welcome students of all nationalities and backgrounds to our school!

Living in a foreign country can be difficult at the beginning. Mind and Dance provides you with the needed support to integrate yourself in a new country, culture and language. We offer German classes for all students as well as help with German bureaucracy and finding suitable accommodation close to the school.

Professional classes

The professional classes educates young people to become a dancer or dance teacher within three years.

It is our big concern to support our students on their way to the professional field of dance in the best way with the result not just being technically very good, but also becoming independent-minded and acting humans and artists. According to our name, Mind and Dance focuses on mental and emotional development as much as on the technical. Because we are sure only autonomous and fortunate dancers can be successful.

Our team consists of renowned pedagogues, choreographers and dance science experts, who support and work together on every single student’s future.


Year I: Foundation

In the first year the foundations will be set and the imparting of technical knowledge in classical ballet and modern dance as well as the discovering of the individual strengths and interests have priority (supplemented with pilates / floor barre / yoga / jazz / theory / improvisation / coaching). At the end students have to make the decision if they put their focus on ballet or contemporary dance.

Year II: Buildup

In the second year follows the diversification of the curriculum. Depending on where you set your focus, the timetable will completed with character dance and repertoire in classical ballet or contemporary technical skills, partnering and composition in contemporary dance.

Year III: Specialising

In graduation year the students dedicate themselves apart from learning technique and theory to own projects like bigger choreographies, written essays and internships too. The school’s intention is to support their students as good as possible to start a professional life.
