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:

Now we are completely UNRAVELed

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.

Tak til Toniah for et skønt set up i Malk De Koijns univers.

Var super underholdt. Hvilken talentmasse af mandlige dansere vi har herhjemme.

Tak til Boris Aleandro og Tobias mine tidligere elever på Danseuddannelsen.
