About us


Spin Off Forstudium i Dans is a 1 year foundation degree for people who want to work professionally in the field of dance in the future – either as a dancer, dance teacher or choreographer. It is a valued institution, it contributes towards raising the level and quality of dance education in Norway, and it is also a provider for students in higher education in dance, both in Norway and internationally. Previous students have gone on to study in renowned conservatoires across the world, working with dance in numerous ways.

The school is located at Schous Kulturbryggeri, Grünerløkka, next to cultural venues  such as Riksscenen, Popsenteret and Øvingshotellet. The school has new and modern facilities with sprung floors in all studios. It also has a purpose built in-house theatre which stages students performances. The school shares its facilities with theatre students from Forstudium Teater and Oslo  kulturskole. The studios are also used by professional dancers and dance companies, contributing to making the school a creative and inspiring environment.

Spin Off accepts 23 full time students for the program, through a yearly audition held in April. The school’s main subjects are ballet, contemporary and jazz, as well as a strong focus towards process-orientated work in composition and choreography. Supporting subjects include yoga, pilates, improvisation, injury prevention and body conditioning. Throughout the year students work with choreographers and the school year ends with a performance at Riksscenen showcasing student works and new commissioned work made for and with the students.
