Dance in Art (DiA) is a private center for dance-, art education and performance training. DiA educates and prepares students to enter the professional dance world. The professional diploma course is designed to achieve the maximum potential of each and every student who is accepted into the school.

The program is customized to each dancer’s physical and emotional needs. DiA works on perfecting the art and technique of young students as a formula for future professional practice, providing an ideal platform for future dancers and talented young choreographers to gain knowledge for the future.

It is of the utmost importance to give the students a valuable education,  an education they can benefit from for the rest of their life’s. Focusing solely on them, to give all the students the technical and artistic knowledge they will need to succeed in whatever direction they would like to take their professional dance career and to ensure all the hard work is for a higher and magnificent purpose.
