Contemporary Dance Berlin – Dock11, ProStage, Motion*s, Papillon, Danceworks, Lake Studio
In the article Top 8 Contemporary Dance Studios In Berlin I provided basic information about best 8 schools for contemporary dancers in Berlin. You can find there a google map and UBahn/SBahn map, helping you to find your favorite school easily and make a right decision, in which area of Berlin you should stay, when you visit Berlin. This article presents more detailed information about the dance classes offered by 6 recommended by me dance studios. The first 2 schools are described in separate articles : Tanzfabrik and Marameo.

DOCK 11

INFO

U2 Eberswalderstraße/Senefelderplatz, U8 Bernauerstraße
Trial Class - 9 Euro
Price Info in the Dock11 website is in the Sidebar

Professional classes:

Contemporary Dance for Professionals: Mo-Fr 10:00 – 11:30 (every week different teacher) Contemporary Ballet for Professionals: Mo-Fr 12:00 – 13:30 (one teacher)

Regular classes:

ballet, contemporary, improvisation and yoga.

MY EXPERIENCE

This studio is in the backyard. So just enter the gate and keep going till you see on the right side a small billboard Dock 11. I don’t know this dance school very well. I only participated there in ballet classes for the beginners on Wednesday with Saskia Klepsch. She is a very good teacher. I definitely recommend this class. It was a morning class during the week. That was perfect, because it is very difficult to find ballet classes for adults for beginners in the morning. Most of the morning classes are for children or for professionals.

ProStage

INFO

no classes

MY EXPERIENCE

I was participating in their contemporary evening classes few times. I enjoyed it. The teacher was a young lady, who was doing a study program that ProStage offers. It wasn’t a very professional class, but it was interesting and with a good content. Unfortunately, I don’t remember her name, so I cannot bring it here. I liked this school and its atmosphere.

Papillon Tanz Studios

INFO

Professional classes:

no classes

Regular classes:

Ballet, Breakdance, Floorbarre, HipHop, Jazz Dance, Contemporary, Pilates, Yoga.

MY EXPERIENCE

Again, I went there on Tuesday to try a ballet class at 10:00-11:30 and afterwards contemporary dance 11:30-13:00. I really liked the ballet class. I should though mention that I don’t have any big expectations towards ballet classes. I am a beginner in ballet and most of the classes suits me. Contemporary dance was lead by a young girl. You could feel that she is still learning to find her own way of expression. I enjoyed the class. But, in a long term commitment, I preferred to go to Tanzfabrik or Marameo. If you know more about this place, please write your opinion in the comments below.

DanceWorks

INFO

U6 Seestrasse, U9/U8 Osloerstarsse, U9 Nauenerplatz
It doesn't provide open classes anymore
It offers Dance Education and Pre-Dance Education
This school since a short time only offers Pre-Education and Dance Education Programs.

MY EXPERIENCE: This is one of the first schools, which I found on internet before moving to Berlin. It took my attention, because they offer 5 months DANCE INTENSIVE PROGRAM, which prepares for their DANCE study program (Ausbildung). However, I have never decided to participate in it. If you know this school please write your opinion in the comments below.

Lake Studio Berlin

INFO

S3 Hirschgarten (the station is not that close to the school, you need to use a bus or walk)
Trial Class - Free
Prices appears under the schedule.

Professional classes:

(with resident artists) Mo 9:30-11:00, We 10:30-12:00, Fr 9:30-11:00

Regular classes:

Contemporary Training, Feldenkrais, Hatha Yoga, Meditation, Qi Gong.

MY EXPERIENCE

This studio is located far away from the centrum of Berlin. Going there is not really convenient. Takes a lot of time. Why than I am mentioning this school here? I think it is a very good place not for regular classes but for dance workshops. I was there once. They were offering a Partnering Workshop for free. It was one of the best workshops I have participated in Berlin so far. You won’t hear about Lake Studio as often as about Marameo. But, it is worth to be aware that this place exists.

    This is very cool info. We move to Berlin last October cause my wife wants to develop her career as a contemporary dancer. I’ll definitely share this post (and the blog) with her. She knows some of these places so maybe she could comment here too. Thanks!
