experiences and emotions "

Above all, dance expresses the world in which we live. She  allows our creativity to flow freely. With one eye on the past and the other on the future, we believe that every dancer should have their own voice and talk about themselves in some way.

edha offers a unique one-year residency in Annecy for ambitious 1st year student dancers and current student dancers.

Participants in the 2nd year residency program experience the life and work of the dancer performer.

The program expands your studio practice to technical skills, while preparing you for entry into an edha program.  

Apply and experience a year of immersion in the world of dance as a performer.

"Objectivity & openness"

The program is open to dance students  :  self-taught and non-dance students hip-hop having an ability to demonstrate the art of dance. Contemporary dancers are welcome.

The dancer must demonstrate advanced technical skills and abilities in dance.

Emphasis will be placed on his ability to have a certain autonomy, maturity, and be available to the choreographer.

It is necessary to have a level of dance mastery allowing to consider a successful insertion in a hip-hop or contemporary creation environment.

Those admitted to the program will have the opportunity to work in our studios, take courses and exhibit at edha.

About ten residences are offered each year.

Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the world of dance , to perform, to attend shows, exhibitions, and meet artists to nourish their personal practice in the studio.

edha and the partners of Culture,  including entertainment institutions, facilitate this exploration with event recommendations each week.
