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:

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.

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.
