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:

Saul Nash (London Fashion Week Mens)

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.

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.

Now we are completely UNRAVELed

AUDITION for 2018/2019 this Sunday the 17th of June.

Digesting impressions

Saturday we celebrated Danseuddannelsen’s 10 years anniversary with “UNRAVEL” - and what a day! We are still digesting all the impressions and experiences that came along with this day and we are overwhelmed with joy and pride to say the least. 

We are joyful and proud for unmentionably many reasons, but let’s try to explain a few…

 

From top to toe

UNRAVEL consisted of 5 pieces. The pieces were all very different from each other and each piece had their own unique features, but they all represented Danseuddannelsen from top to toe. All the dancers were either current or former students and the pieces were choreographed by Sara Gaardbo, Nana Kjær Regner (graduated 2013), Tobias  Ellehammer (graduated 2011) and Asta Gaardbo (graduated 2014). 

 

Bring it back

Our celebration day and the 5 pieces paints a clear picture of the education being self-sufficient and sustainable - wait, what… are we talking about climate changes now? No! :) What we mean by saying that we’re self-sufficient and sustainable is that Danseuddannelsen has grown to be one big eco-system of students being educated and then coming back to teach, to do projects, to develop material, and so much more, which we are incredibly happy about. Furthermore it is not a closed eco-system we have going on here; we also bring in teachers that has completely different background to add other amazing things to the education as well as the former students don’t only come back to us - they are both near and far, nationally and internationally. This is something that we cherish even more and what is one of our main goals on the education: to create dancers that are independent, courageous, diverse, adaptable, and innovative. To strive for all these things our graduates need to be disciplined and to “fly the nest”, and then we are thrilled to welcome you home, when you are back. 

 

Our contribution

We are exceptionally proud of the fact that we each year contribute to the dance community with new shooting stars that graduates Danseuddannelsen and immediately becomes a part of the professional dance scene. We are also happy about opening new doors and inspiring some of the students to continue their development and seek more training to continue working on their craft. 

Cheers to 10 years of guidance, mentorship, development and last but not least DANCE. 

A massive THANK YOU to everybody who has been a part of this journey, we could not have done it without you!

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.
