One Style is a one-year forward-thinking course for you who want to gain valuable experience, get new knowledge and improve your skills in one of the styles: Locking, House, Hiphop, Popping or Breaking. This course offers participants the chance to study with a dynamic and skilled group, to experiment and explore through freestyling. You will have great opportunities to develop your dance identity while working in small groups and studying a variety of topics, such as history, dance technique and culture.
You will have three classes/week with your mentor, and two practical classes/week with your one-style group. Additionally, there will be afternoon classes on such as movement and physical. The course takes place at Åsa Folk High School (Åsa folkhögskola), Sköldinge, Sweden.
Åsa folkhögskola is located 1 hour from Stockholm in a village called Sköldinge, which offers different educational programs, such as dance, music and highschool studies. The school has a boarding school which means you live at the school and will take part in boarding school activities. School cafeteria offers breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday to friday.
