SPOTLIGHT: Sebastian Skov

He came, he saw, he conquered…

Our very own Sebastian Skov is one of a kind and we would like to let you know what he’s been up to lately, because we are incredibly proud of him. 

After finishing “West Side Story” here in Denmark, Sebastian decided to move to London to dive deeper into the commercial scene. And so he did! Since he came to London in November 2018, Sebastian has worked with following artists:

About moving to London he says: “I’m always on the lookout for new challenges. Development is essential for me. If I feel like I’m standing still, I know it’s time to move on - and naturally my dreams get bigger and push me to do something about it. I realized London was the place for me 3 years ago, when I booked my first big gig, which was a tour with FKA twigs. We had 2 weeks of rehearsal in London and afterwards we performed in several different countries. The dream about moving to London started to take shape. However, I didn’t have the money to move there at the time, and I also felt like my home country still had some jobs in store that I would want to try. I spent 3 years saving money for my London dream, and I also got to do 2 tours with the Danish band Infernal as well as taking part in the musical “West Side Story”.

Now Sebastian’s London life is no longer a dream but a well deserved reality. However, he doesn’t spend all his time in London at the moment as he is touring with Rita Ora on the “Phoenix Tour”.

We are so proud of you, Sebastian, and we absolutely love following your journey! We are thankful for still having you with us in the studio to learn from you, when you are home to visit, but you also inspire us from afar.

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:
