HF Zeitgenössischen & Urbanen Bühnentanz

The main aspect in that course of study is the formation of stage dancers, who are able to work, to interact and to express in the field of contemporary and urban dance language on a high level, while integrating an interdisciplinary knowledge. The student gets to know DANCE as an integral process in mainly practical exercises, excursions and artistic projects. This strengthens, deepens and fosters its abilities, talents and limitations. The nearness to the artistic practice is very important in that course. The students therefore get the possibility to earn wide-ranging experiences while internships and regular performances and presentations in front of an audience.

The HF ZUB transfers an intensive fundamental knowledge in the field of choreography, pedagogy, project management as well as a wide spectrum of theoretical knowledge with practical relevance. This helps the students already while studying to prepare options in other subareas of stage dance, to apply them and even to specialize.

The HF ZUB's teaching team is international, qualified and competent. All teachers have a longtime experience on stage, as a teacher and or as a choreographer. Renowned guest docents and choreographers regularly complete the teaching team.


"I never imagined I would ever receive the opportunity to be admitted to a dance program which is welcoming such a variety of people with a different kind of background and approach. Personally, I came with a lack of foundation and anatomically speaking with no perfect precondition in the classical sense. I did the audition two years in a row until I passed. But the school supported me since the first audition and ever since. Whether it was concerning my development as a dancer, photographer, film maker or financial insecurities. HF Bühnentanz is a space for a big overview of the variety of dance, with well-known teachers and a network allowing the students to gain insight into the world of classical dance, contemporary dance and street styles. The school encourages to discover new ideas of movement without forgetting where it came from. I am very grateful that the school trusted me and I’m proud to have been part of this still quite new education program." Lena Marie Rheinländer, July 2021
