In addition to the regular training delivered by world-renowned teachers, students are given the opportunity to develop their skills in dance creation and, importantly, in performance. This practical experience is a key element in the training of young dancers. Our students have performed in public in Switzerland and other European countries, in Latin America, Russia, Japan, India and China.
Maurice Béjart’s idea was to train dancers who could not only come up to choreographers’ expectations, but who could also succeed as creators and producers in their own right. Many of the School’s former students have formed, and now run, their own innovative companies.
With regard to the shows, all student costs such as transport, accommodation, subsistence, costumes etc., are covered by the organisers.
