Welcome to Berlin Dance Institute

My goal is this: always to put myself in a place in which I am best able to serve, wherever my gifts and qualities find the best soil to grow, the widest field of action. There is no other goal.Hermann Hesse
BDI is an international institute of excellence in the field of contemporary dance training. At the root of our ethos is the aspiration to push contemporary dance forward by working and collaborating with professional artists whose desires and interests are engaged within the profession, to inspire the next generation of dance artists to explore the endless possibilities of contemporary dance.

At our base located in the heart of Berlin, we provide our young dance artists the opportunity to learn and train in a place that values the individuality and creativity of each student. We offer a 3-year dance education programme on level with a European undergraduate programme. Our programme encompasses both curricular and extra-curricular possibilities ensuring that students collaborate with other art students and guest professionals. There are opportunities to engage with a variety of audiences in different environments. Our programme is outward and forward-facing giving our students the best possible advantage to learn about the contemporary dance profession and steer their path into future careers.

In addition through collaboration with Ballett Centrum/Musical School we are able to provide workshops and open classes in all dance techniques and styles at all levels to all ages. We welcome everyone to become a part of our friendly, caring and open dance community.
