Classes: Regular technique classes are open to dancers of advanced/professional level and pre-registration is necessary.
Workshops: It is necessary to pre-register on the site and then send a CV and dance film. A selection is made on the basis of the CVs (usually we choose a mix of professionals and students) and then payment must be made.  Workshops are mostly 5 days workshops (Monday to Friday) and weekend workshops. If you register for more than one workshop you only need to send the cv and dance film once. 

You are responsible for your own accommodation, though we have a suggestion list, and some offers for hostels, as well as a access to a private Facebook-group for dancers in the city to help each other out with housing. See Youth Hostels and Budget Hotels SI 2021 for more info!
