DANCEWORKS berlin was founded May 6th 1986 as “The Association for the Advancement of Modern Dance”. Since then the school has become one of the most established schools in Berlin and many students have pursued a carrier within the field of dance upon graduating from the accredited 3-year professional education.
In 2018 DANCEWORKS berlin moved to the new location in Osram Höfe, Tanzraum Wedding. We are now housing in amazing studios with fantastic windows and special dance floor – offering both inspiration and optimal conditions for extensive dance training. The outstanding studios are also frequently rented by established companies such as Sasha Waltz, Komische Oper and many freelance choreographer giving the students and staff a natural insight and connection to the vibrant dance scene of Berlin.
Under the directorship of Lars Anderstam the school has reinforced the educational perspective since 2016 and is now exclusively offering 3 year accredited dance education and preparatory education. The aim is, through a faculty with extensive artistic and dance professional experience, to strengthen employability and endorse future creative dance artists with a solid dance technical base.
