The dance support training consists of the following parts: Pilates & Floor Barre, Body Conditioning, strength training for men and improvisation. Pilates classes focus on the efficient use of the muscles and obtaining the correct posture through the use of specific exercises. These classes are aimed at increasing a dance student's body awareness and efficient use of the body. The aim of Body Conditioning classes is to improve the student's general fitness and build stamina and muscle strength.
Dance improvisation aims to develop the stage personality and the personal dance language. Being aware of composition in time and space, learning to look at and analyze each other's work, understand how to give and receive feedback, use game elements and use the voice, help to increase the expressive capacity and contribute to the development of a personal 'theatre personality'.
The teacher determines how best to achieve a methodical division of the subject matter. The instruction is given in groups. Teaching methods used by the teacher are demonstration, instruction, analysis, personal guidance, rehearsal and presentation.
There are no tests for the dance-supporting subjects, but the progress made during the Pilates classes and the physical fitness training is evaluated by the relevant teachers in the Autumn Report. The student's performance is also discussed during the integral evaluation meetings in December and spring/summer. Students are required to attend these classes.
