Overview

Our courses are designed specifically to harness and foster both individual creativity and personal excellence to enable our students to have reach, ambition and impact - today.

Fontys Dance Academy offers dance artists and makers the training to develop their own signature and create their own work, with full awareness of where and how they will contribute both to the performing arts field and society. 

Authentic, curious and distinctive dance artists work in an inclusive learning environment, where individual growth and co-operative exploration are equally prized.

Practical work is underpinned by an extensive and rigorous training and research programme that includes a wide range of performance and movement practices. Our students are the creators of and performers in their own work. We specifically appreciate students who challenge our ideas of what a dance artist is. We want to work with dancers from different backgrounds with an urgent interest in creative, playful, conceptual and resonant dance making.
