International Master Course

About us

As artistic team Skandalisi Dance we have been building a new educational project ‘International Master Course’. During this programme we try to contribute to the city’s development and its art society. We would like to provide the small cities of Russia with possibilities to grow in the field of art and dance: new teachers, choreographers and dancers coming to share their experience with the dancers of the city. We plan to invite international certified dance teachers. Our main focus lies on contemporary dance techniques that were not represented in the cities of Russia before. We plan it to become a long-term international project.


Skandalisi Dance believes that its very important to give dancers from different cities of Russia an opportunity to develop their professional skills. We got to know that it can be extremely expensive and difficult to travel to Moscow, Saint-Petersburg or abroad to attend workshops they were always dreaming about. With bringing the teachers to other cities such as e.g. Yekaterinburg we try to give this chance to people who are fond of dancing in different regions.
