The most important prerequisite for training as a stage dancer is the love for dancing, as well as the enthusiasm to use all your strength, dedication and energy! However, this does not develop by itself, but is rather awakened and encouraged by a ballet teacher during the childhood and adolescent years. Only then is there a chance that a spark will ignite and a career in dance will begin.
We are looking for passionate, enthusiastic young people who are prepared to give their all for their career goal!

STAGE DANCE EDUCATION
Focus: Classical Dance
In the three-year professional training program to become a classical stage dancer, the focus of the classes is on classical dance and contemporary dance.
Our students learn, deepen and consolidate the entire movement vocabulary and technique of classical dance according to the Russian methodology of Waganova and Eduardowa. They also learn modern dance techniques and numerous contemporary styles and movement concepts.
We expect our students to pursue their goal of becoming professional stage dancers with passion and love.
In addition to excellent technical skills, our aim is to develop the dancing personality of each individual student and to prepare him or her optimally for a professional career as a stage dancer.
Hans Vogl, founder of IDAB, leads the professional training with a focus on classical dance.
We attach the utmost importance to the excellent dance and pedagogical education provided by our teachers, who not only teach the students movements and dance techniques, but also do everything they can to help them achieve their goals with enthusiasm, perseverance and joy.
6-month Intensive Program
If you have not yet made the decision to pursue full-time training and are not yet 100% sure of your career goals, we offer the intensive pre-education program for stage dance.
In this program, previous experience is of course a prerequisite and your dance skills will be raised to a more intensive level.
It then makes sense to create the right conditions and foundations to reach a more professional level in training. In the preliminary education, the focus is on learning how to train professionally.
The students learn and internalize a technical basis, placement, discipline and improvisation. Musicality is trained and artistic personality development is encouraged.
Furthermore, girls are introduced to pointe technique and boys to large jump and turn variations.
Our intensive pre-education program lasts 6 months (usually September – February) and multiple participation is also possible.
The program consists of 2 classes (90 min. each) daily (Monday-Friday), either in the early evening or in the morning.
One training in classical dance and one training in contemporary dance or repertoire.
Admission is possible throughout the entire year and is based on participation in a training session in our pre-education program.
The minimum age is 13 years. You should have good physical anatomical prerequisites for classical dance.
Furthermore, musicality, self-discipline, stamina and enthusiasm are essential qualities that should be brought along.
The total fee for the program is € 1,750.00 and can be paid in monthly installments of € 350.00 at the beginning of the month, but no later than the 10th of the month.
