Applicants should have turned 16 years of age

The National Conservatory Dance School welcomes both national and international students.

The school, based in Lisbon, offers a full-time Secondary Education (September-July) in both general and artistic studies.

The curriculum is designed for students who have turned 16 years of age with the highest artistic and technical skills in both classical ballet and contemporary dance, who want to pursue a career as professional dancers.

Our dance training and curriculum concentrate on multidisciplinary technique and style of dancing, required by international dance companies. It includes daily ballet and contemporary classes, as well as additional lessons in pas de deux, classical and contemporary repertoire, composition, music, contemporary duet, character and yoga/pilates.

Students will also receive coaching for auditions, competitions and school performances. Each trimester, the school organizes performances as well as different public events. At the end of the school year, a final performance is presented in one main theatre in Lisbon.

The National Conservatory Dance School offers a recognised dance education at national and international levels. All students graduating from the school will receive an official national diploma or certificate.
