Support Contemporary Dance in Berlin!

Berlin Dance Institute has moved into a beautiful new dance campus located in the heart of Berlin. The renovation is almost complete, but furnishing five studios is expensive and we can't do it alone.

Support us today and shape the future of Contemporary Dance in Berlin as a member of the BDI community.  

We set up a crowd funding project on GoFundMe - learn more here.

Contemporary Dance Education in Berlin

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 education. At the root of our ethos is the aspiration to push contemporary dance forward by working and collaborating with professional artists who make up our international faculty. Our faculty will 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 contemporary 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 contemporary dance education 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.
