How does it look like during Children's Studio? There is a video from last session with parents at the end of the school year 2016/2017.


Children's studio 2018/2019

Dance-movement lessons for children which are developing their creativity, perception of rhythm, space, dynamics, energy and cooperation with other children. Lessons are led by selected lecturers, active dance artists and pedagogues in collaboration with musicians. Children in Children's studio meet every Wednesday from October to May at regular time.

Creative lessons of Children's studio are opened for three groups:
15:00 - 16:10 children 8 - 12 years
16:20 - 17:05  children 4 – 6 years
17:15 - 18:15  children 6 - 8 years

The age group is only indicative, the children will be divided by the tutors after the first sample hour. 

Due to big interest is the capacity of sample lesson now full. We do not accept other applications. We will inform you about news and other options on this website during October.

Please bare in mind the age limit of children 4-12 years. We do not accept children under the age of 4. We prefer to have self-reliant children so they could develop equally their physical abilities and skills.
