New format: LAB, a professional training that focuses more on conveying the artistic working methods of the invited artist and less on the technical aspects of dance. The invited artists are at different stages of their artistic journey and invest in their specific approach to movement and/or their artistic practice. It is an opportunity for dancers, choreographers and creatives to meet physically in the studio, exchange ideas and be curious about each other.


These PT Lab sessions usually take place on the last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the month during regular professional training times. Schedule irregularities are possible, the dates and teachers/choreographers will be communicated in advance. All Profitraining participants are invited to cultivate their openness and to dive into unfamiliar or familiar working methods in order to share a studio moment together.
