SEAD Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance is tucked away into the tree lined hillside of Kapuzinerberg Salzburg. SEAD is a ten-minute walk away from the center. You will have access to both a small city environment as well as scenic woodlands and nearby lakes. SEAD will be your home away from home during your intensive workshop weeks.

SEAD will give students a chance to experience SEAD in a one-week workshop that gives the participants a taste of what daily life is like in our academy program. MoveMentors dance intensive workshops offer daily morning classes in somatic practice, contemporary and ballet techniques, followed by an afternoon creative practice taught by SEAD faculty.

Our aim for the MoveMentors workshop series is to provide a format that will be inspiring, supportive and informative, giving students very practical skills and sound advice so that they can continue on their way in dance, surefooted and clear about what they need to focus on in order to progress as dancers. We also aim to offer an affordable workshop in a small group setting, where you can be in close communication with the teachers with individualized coaching and mentoring. MoveMentors dance intensive is also highly recommended as a preparation for those who want to apply for SEAD’s Auditions 2021/22.

Sleeping at SEAD is included in the workshop fee. Alternatively, you could use one of the hostels or hotels in Salzburg, however this will be an additional expense for you to cover. The workshop participants share the dormitory and must bring their own sleeping bag or sheets. SEAD provides mattress and pillows.


One hot vegetarian meal will be provided daily, included in the workshop fee. We will also have a closing dinner together by the end of the workshop week. There are lots of markets nearby and many restaurants in town.
