Drop dead entertainment with side-splitting acting and the coolest movers in Tivoli

It’s one hell of a ride and how we just love when former students from different years unite powers in productions like this…

Congratulations to our FOUR former students: Tone Reumert (2011/2012), Asta Gaardbo (2013/2014), Adam Tocuyo (2016/2017) & Frederik Levin (2017/2018) on booking “Terkel the Motherfårking Musical” in Tivoli. You are all both hilarious characters and stunning dancers at the same time. We love how you blend in and stand out with your faces covered in wigs and make-up but your movement will always be your tell - and thank you for that, we absolutely love what you do. 

Do yourself a favour and go see “Terkel the Motherfårking Musical”. If you are in Copenhagen make sure you catch them performing before they leave the city to go touring in Denmark. Otherwise you can find them in a city near you.

Asta. Here seen as her ensemble character, but she is also playing the role as “Rita”, where she has had stunt lessons in order to fulfill the very action packed role - and she is doing such a great job!

SCREAM by Tobias Ellehammer

He is courageous, dedicated, ambitious, insanely talented and always reaching for the stars. Tobias, your mindset and hard work never fails to impress us…

With the 11:20 minutes long dance video “Scream” Tobias finishes his project “The Jackson Trilogy”. With his previous videos “Burn It Up” & “Black or White” he had us all ecstatic and overwhelmed, and now this 3rd video seems to be completely out of this world and we’re about to burst. Thank you for always being invested in your dreams and setting a huge example for all of us. We are extremely proud of you!

This video also means a little extra to us, because a great number of people from Danseuddannelsen got to be a part of it - we’re always excited when former students get together. However, first one up is not a former student: owner and artistic director of Danseuddannelsen, Sara Gaardbo, got to work with Tobias on the project as costume designer and we are so thrilled that the two of you were finally able to join forces. Behind the scenes pictures from the trips to Iceland & Wales appear further down. Former student Maria Ipsen (2011/2012) assisted Sara with the costumes - amazing how this education also gets to inspire people to go in other directions with their creativity. Thank you Maria for giving a helping hand, when you yourself certainly have your hands full of projects.

Former student Sebastian Skov (2014/2015) appears in the video as one of the recurring dancers and we are so happy to see you being you in the univers that Tobias created. So much talent and knowledge in such a young dancer - so much respect goes out to you, Sebastian.

Furthermore, 10 gorgeous former students was a part of the video:

Premiering with Disney’s musical TARZAN… 

A massive congratulations, Ida, on booking Tarzan and thank you for being such a hard worker and always on your mark. We enjoy following your projects - which there are always plenty of - and we are so proud of you. Only 2 months ago you were doing your own work at Teater Momentum in collaboration with 2 other dancers in the piece “We Are Not Unique” and before that you were touring Denmark with the musical “Midt Om Natten.” We’ve surely got to watch our step if we want to keep up with your pace - and we love it. We admire you for being such a go-getter and we hope that you will enjoy your time in the rainforest :) 

You can go check out Fredericia Teater’s instagram for some cool rehearsal videos, where you can see Ida and the rest of the cast prepare for the jungle.

Dancing our way to Copenhagen Fashionweek

Dancing our way to Copenhagen Fashionweek

6 of our Danseuddannelsen family members were a part of the Elaine Hersby show at Copenhagen Fashionweek earlier this month…

How beautiful when everything unites in perfect harmony. 

Former student Nana Kjær Regner both danced in and choreographed this stunning show at D'angleterre, and we are paralyzed by your talent both on stage and as a choreographer - you are one of a kind.

Along with her she brought 7 beautiful dancers - 4 of them being either former or current students from Danseuddannelsen. Congratulations Naomi Matzeu Malchau, Maria Ipsen, Maria Juul Gauger, and Emilie Frost Ebstrup for a succesful show - you were shining on stage, and we are so very proud of you. 

Current student Frederik Levin showed another skillset being backstage sending the models on stage and being the calm in the chaos.

Scroll down to see some of the photos from the show.

Maji Claire dancing in “The Book of Mormon” at Det Ny Teater

A massive congratulations to this beautiful young lady, who is completely unstoppable…

Claire graduated from Danseuddannelsen in 2013 and she has had her hands on so many different aspects of dance since she “flew the nest” 5 years ago. To mention a few things: 

She performed in the hiphop version of “The Nutcracker” at Docken 

She is co-creater and part of the group “Disturbing Business” 

She toured with Infernal during their 2017 anniversary performance

And now she is currently working as “Sadaka” in The Book of Mormon - can you believe it? Congratulations Claire, we are so very proud of what you’ve accomplished, and we hope you will enjoy the next 4 months being in this production.
