When going for (a) DETOUR

San Boshi at Detour Urban Dance Festival…

Choreographed by Olivia Sol Anselmo and danced alongside former students Maria Gauger (2017/2018) and Asta Gaardbo (2013/2014) last week at Detour Urban Dance Festival.

Urban Detour Festival is an event created by Sara Jordan that each year brings new urban dance pieces to the stage and showcases different choreographers within urban dance. We are so proud of our two former students showing both feminine strength, vulnerability, and badass musicality all at once in this beautiful piece by Olivia.

We have seen Asta develop into such a strong dancer (and also choreographer) since she graduated Danseuddannelsen in 2014 and we can barely stop punching the air in excitement of this lady. Also we feel the need to give an extra round of applaus to Maria who graduated only 3 months ago and already is out and about in the dance community in search for more.

100 shows down, 36 to go!

Cirkusrevyen 2018 with 3 of our former students in the cast... 

While most of us have been travelling, spending time in the sun, or enjoying a vacation in some other way our three former students; Helene Høier (2014/2015), Adam Tocuyo (2016/2017), and Lea Simonsen (2016/2017), have been working at Cirkusrevyen doing 8 shows a week every week since mid May. Today they can celebrate show number 100 - CONGRATULATIONS GUYS! :)

In Cirkusrevyen the dancers have 2 dance numbers created by René Vinther, where they are put into two very different environments and are challenged in both genre and moods. This is something that we know these three people are capable of, when they put their mind into it! But since Cirkusrevyen mainly consists of sketches making fun of today’s society, the dancers have to be willing to adapt into a lot of different roles and situations, which is not something everyone can do. We are so proud of the three of you for having booked this job where you most differently have to be versatile as well as disciplined (the number of shows is even enough to understand why). 

Keep up the good work, we are cheering for you.

Introducing Bang & Olufsen with a familiar face

"Roam. Explore. Ebb and flow. Be transformed. Make waves."

These are the words used by B&O introducing their Spring/Summer 2018 Collection - these words represented through movement by the beautiful dancers Adam Tocuyo & Olivia Sol Anselmo. We are indeed "transformed" watching these mesmerizing people, and we are also very proud of you, Adam. We love seeing you doing you in this elegant commercial that is combining beautiful sound with the soft and at the same time strong movement from the two of you.

UNRAVEL guested by Tobias Ellehammer

Tobias will be choreographing a piece with former students and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 10 years anniversary. 

Tobias graduated from Danseuddannelsen in 2011 and has since then been working professionally both as a dancer and a choreographer all over the world. We feel very lucky to have him and other former students joining us on this special night and being an extract of the many wonderful people and dancers, who have been educated from Danseuddannelsen throughout the years.

We are absolutely thrilled to be celebrating 10 years of developing, creating, exploring, challenging, having fun, working hard,  and last but not least DANCING. We have a few extra tricks up our sleeves for the celebration of the anniversary and we can’t wait to share it with you.
