Course content 
Workshops are Repertoire classes with a short-term intense focus on a specific work or part thereof, or else on a specific choreographer and style.

The workshop acquaints the student with a different style and/or working method, and challenges him/her to apply the learned techniques in a situation comparable to what the student will encounter in professional practice, and is often outside his/her comfort zone. Workshops often take place in the context of demonstrations or final productions, and can offer opportunity to prepare or rehearse a specific work for these performances. 
Some workshops focus on a specific choreographer and associated techniques, working method, way of thinking, and application. 

Workshops can also be build at other times throughout the year around specific themes, involve talks with professional from the field, involve teaching of make-up skills or other required theatrical skills or have specific short term training goals (for example through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy sessions).
