In 2006 the Inter-University Centre for Dance (HZT) started as a pilot project of “Tanzplan Berlin”. As from 1st April 2010 the HZT Berlin has continued under the organization of Berlin University of the Arts and the College of Dramatic Art ‘Ernst Busch’ in cooperation with the network TanzRaumBerlin.
The outstanding feature of the three study programmes at the HZT Berlin – the Bachelor programme Dance, Context, Choreography and the Master programmes Solo/Dance/Authorship and Choreography – is their close combination of academic training and professional artistic practice; the courses are experimental in orientation and link artistic teaching with the teaching of scientific principles, accompanied by professional practice. They respond to the changes in contemporary art production, and address both creatively and critically what dance, performance and choreography are and can be as art forms in present-day societies.
Application and admission to the Master programme Choreography are organized via the College of Dramatic Art “Ernst Busch”.
