artist training courses
The BCDC’s mission is to continue the school’s 40-year tradition of supporting the development and artistic growth of young talents who wish to become a performer in the field of contemporary dance.
Our aim is for students to acquire up-to-date and diverse knowledge of dance techniques and the essential practice in performing and the process of creation during their three years of college, and to graduate with a BA degree in Dance.
dance and circus
Dance and Rehearsal Coaching (theatre dance) BA – circus dancer specialisation.
The three-year, full-time course prepares students for the world of circus dancing. In addition to developing general movement learning, health awareness, coordination and isolation, the training covers a variety of dance styles.
The internship is carried out in cooperation with the Capital Circus of Budapest and other partner circuses and theatres.
Starting in September 2023, for the first time in Hungary, two three-year, full-time, higher education level circus art courses were launched: the clowning and equestrian acrobatics BA courses. From September 2024, our new aerial acrobatics BA course will be also available.
The aim of the College is to train such circus artists – based on the traditions of training acrobats in Hungary – whose diplomas are synonymous with up-to-date practical and theoretical knowledge and creativity anywhere in the world.
The two-year teacher training course prepares you for pedagogical work in contemporary dance and other movement-based arts. The main areas of training are:
- Teaching integrated experiential dance practice and theory
- Teaching creativity development
- Teaching the development of social skills
