Top 8 Contemporary Dance Studios In Berlin, Germany

Hey guys,

I am Basia. I spend two years in Berlin, working there as a physiotherapist and at the same time trying to fulfill my passion and dance as much as possible. This is how I found the best contemporary dance studios in Berlin and not only.

There were three factors, which I took into account while searching for the dance schools in Berlin.

1. The dance style – my main focus was contemporary dance.

2. The level of the classes – I was never a professional dancer. However, the dance was always a part of my life. There are many schools, which are recreational, meaning that the teacher level is not that good or even if it’s quite okey, the way they lead the classes make me wanna go out in the middle of the lesson as I don’t feel it brings anything to me. Accordingly, I was looking for advanced classes, with a passionate, skillful teachers, where I can learn, have fun and improve.

3. Where is the school –  is it far away from my home or work? (this factor was less important).


To make it easy for you, I gathered most important information about each school:

  1. Name of the school
  2. Address (click on it and you will be directed to the mentioned address in the google maps)
  3. Nearby UBahn or SBahn.
  4. Price of a trial class (the schools have different prices, you can buy a monthly ticket or 10classes ticket, etc. If you click on the price it will direct you to the Site of the Prices of the particular school)
  5. Website (directs you to the main website of the school)
  6. Additional long-term dance programs offered by the school (click on it and you will be directed to the post about DANCE INTENSIVE PROGRAMS in BERLIN)

    Hi Basia, while searching for contemporary dance school in Germany I came accross your page and would like to ask you, why didn t you write about the Berlin dance Institute? Do you have any information about it? Is it a good school in case you tried it or hear about it? Thanks a lot.

      Hi Maria, actually I have never been in Berlin Dance Institute and didn’t hear about it much. Thank you for this comment. When I go to Berlin I will definitely check it out and maybe make some new article about it. If you will know anything more about this school, please share it here 🙂

    Hi Basia,

    Thank you for this video and article, I found it very helpful! I was wondering if you could tell me how you first discovered these studios. Was it mostly through word of mouth? I am from Australia and hoping to come over to Europe to dance soon, but am unsure of the best way to discover places to dance.

    Thanks very much!

      Hey Hannah,

      Happy I could help 🙂 I discovered the studios through internet at the beginning. I went to many many studios till I found my favorites. Also, in every studio, they usually have flyers promoting upcoming workshops or dance events, so I was checking that as well. Check the schools I and other dancers from the video recommended (mentioned in the post). Later you can explore more! I learn thru people not about the schools but more about the classes or events. GOOD LUCK!!!

    • Basia

      All these studios are great. I recommend all of them. Now, I probably would chose the one you live closer to.
