Chopin University Dance Company


Artis­tic Man­ag­er Alek­san­dra Dzi­urosz

Pho­to Adri­ana Le Hoang

The first dance ensem­ble in the his­to­ry of the Fry­deryk Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty of Music – Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty Dance Com­pa­ny – was found­ed in 2016 at the ini­tia­tive of Rhyth­mics stu­dents and Alek­san­dra Dzi­urosz, pro­fes­sor at the FCUM. It main­ly con­sists of stu­dents and grad­u­ates of the Depart­ment of Choir Con­duct­ing, Music Edu­ca­tion, Church Music, Rhyth­mics and Dance. The ensem­ble also col­lab­o­rates with stu­dents, grad­u­ates and pro­fes­sors from the remain­ing FCUM Depart­ments as well as oth­er artists from Poland and abroad. Thanks to reg­u­lar class­es, mem­bers of the ensem­ble devel­op their con­tem­po­rary and clas­si­cal dance, move­ment impro­vi­sa­tion and act­ing skills. The main artis­tic goal of the group is cre­at­ing an orig­i­nal dance reper­toire con­sist­ing of chore­o­graph­ic minia­tures and per­for­mances based on con­tem­po­rary, jazz and source dances, and move­ment the­atre. The ensemble’s reper­toire is pre­sent­ed dur­ing artis­tic events, fes­ti­vals and com­pe­ti­tions in Poland and abroad.
