The 4th year students of the SNDO - School for New Dance Development graduate by creating two works next to writing a thesis and completing their internship.
The first works are usually presented in Spring, the second ones in June. These programs take place in venues outside the school offering the students professional working conditions and the artistic context. In July the graduation works travel to Berlin, to be presented at Uferstudios. This year’s SNDO graduates present their Spring works across two programs.

The SNDO - School for New Dance Development - offers a full time four-year professional education course leading to a Bachelor's degree in Art – Choreography.The school was founded in 1975 as an attempt to find new directions for dance next to the existing forms and styles that dominated the field. After forty years, the SNDO remains inquisitive, open minded, and in the foreground of progressive developments in the fields of dance and performance.In the curriculum, the school establishes the conditions from which the creativity of the student can emerge. Reflection on the specific qualities of dance and performance as art forms is developed, and awareness of the body and the artistic implications of working with it take precedence.
