The study programme has a study load of 1680 hours per year. From block 1 to 4, each block has approximately 250 hours of contact time, a total of 1000 hours. In addition, the student spends approximately 280 hours on self-study in these blocks, including visits to the theatre. This is just over 8 hours per week. In block 5, the programme focuses entirely on the annual final performance. This block has more contact hours, approx. 380, but does not require self-study hours. In total, one year has about 1400 contact hours.  This means that a ballet training course has a lot of dancing hours. At the same time, we find it important to develop the workload in such a way that the students can build up physical strength, stabilise it and peak when necessary. The alternation between intensive training and rest are balanced by a good coordination of the lessons. Gradually the students work towards the auditions. At first for internships and later for the work field. Theory, reflection and self-study are linked to the practical education and therefore focused on practical application.
