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, Popping, Breaking, Hiphop and House.
This course offers participants the chance to study within a dynamic learning environment, as part of a small group and under the guidance of a mentor. The course encourages the participants to further develop and individualise their dance practice within the chosen style, by studying a variety of areas such as dance technique, history and culture.
You will have two dance classes and one theory class per week with your mentor(s), and three group sessions with your One Style group. Additionally, there will be afternoon classes such as physical, dance psychology and recovery. The course takes place at Åsa folkhögskola (Åsa Folk High School) in Sköldinge, Sweden.
Åsa folkhögskola is located one hour from Stockholm in a village called Sköldinge. The school offers different educational programs, such as dance, music and highschool studies.
