LADMMI Summer School

When you are registered for a DCS in contemporary dance, the school year generally ends at the end of May and the following one only begins at the end of August, which means there is a three-month break. LADMMI is of the opinion that a young dancer who has opted to undertake intensive dance training would be seriously disadvantaged by such an extended break. For this reason, summer training courses are mandatory for all students registered in the DCS in professional training for the duration of the three years of the program.

Summer School lasts three weeks and is generally scheduled so that students have one week to rest before starting the fall session. The courses are centered around two activities: technique classes and workshops.

Technique classes
The technique classes in contemporary dance ensure that the student gets back in shape gradually. The student is responsible for being at his/her maximal physical shape and technical level for the beginning of the fall session and his/her continued training. Dance-related physical training may also be added.

Please note that technique classes are open to dance professionals and to dance students registered in a professional training school. Are you interested? Click here for more details.

Certain workshops such as Bouffon, Singing, Theatre, Voice and Movement, Art and Movement, Rhythm Laboratory are also included in the summer school program. They give young artists and students an opportunity to expand their performance possibilities through courses that complement the professional training program. These workshops give students an opportunity to explore other living arts.
