The Codarts Bachelor of Dance department, founded in 1931 by dance pioneers Corrie Hartong and Gertrud Leistikow, has developed itself into one of the most prominent study programmes for contemporary dance. The programme has a high success rate and consistently ranks in the top rated and most popular dance courses in the world. The strength and effectiveness of the program is also reflected in the wide range of companies our alumni are employed in as well as the many alumni who are pursuing a successful career as independent dance artists.
The structure and build-up of our program, the numerous performance opportunities, our impressive internship program, our many international guest teachers and choreographers, as well as the dedicated care and support of our Codarts faculty and ‘’team around the artist’’ ensures that our graduates are ready to enter the diverse and ever changing international dance community. Codarts graduates are well trained, creative, open-minded and innovative contemporary dance artists, able to position themselves in the professional work field, mapping out their career of life-long learning and personal success.
The Bachelor Dance programme has been named a Top Programme in the Keuzegids Hbo 2024.
