Copenhagen Dance Education is a day training that Copenhagen Dance Space offers under the leadership, creative development and personal feedback to the student, by Josefin Bjerkensjø head of CDS.
Based on specialization and development within the commercial dance scene’s stage language and expression, combined with the expressive and visual, experimental dance genre that moves in the theater space and the world of performances.
The idea of the program is to create strong and stage dancers who understand how to add the commercial scene to an artistic and unique expression.
We take each student’s talent seriously and work to give them all the right tools to develop their particular style and expression. Everyone is seen and worked on based on their specific knowledge and desire for goals. We continuously create many creative tasks, such as creating a piece, working with who in the group is the choreographer and dancer, partnering, tricks, lifting, etc.
In addition to this, the student also has the opportunity to work in front of a camera, be part of smaller dance shows and performances, creative classes with live music, classes in work with his own choreography and understanding of building the same, partner work, preparation for teaching situations, acrobatic lessons and own departure performance at a major theater in CPH. Previous performances during the program have been held at Pakhus 11, Nikolaj Kunsthal, Flysimulatoren Amager, Østergasværk and VEGA.
As part of the program, the student will have the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles in the winter of 2021 and receive instruction from the industry’s most important choreographers and dancers.
In addition, the students receive monthly feedback and evaluation, as part of their course, not only by the educational director Josefin Bjerkensjø but also by the different teachers during the period.
Admission to the program takes place via the submission of video material as well as information about previous experience in both performance and teaching – The students are selected by the owner and education manager, Josefin Bjerkensjö.
