From history

From history

History of our school goes back to 1992 and is connected with its founder, Eva Blažíčková, who built on the legacy of the American dancer Isadora Duncan and her Czech successor Jarmila Jeřábková. Isadory Duncan's school in Prague was run by her sister Elizabeth, who was in Prague from 1931-32. The Duncan style was later associated especially with the pioneer of modern dance in Czechoslovakia, Jarmila Jeřábkov8.

Duncan Centre Conservatory today

Duncan Centre Conservatory today

We perceive dance as a way of life. Teaching dance is not just a practical question. It is the question of values. Values are crucial. We start from the belief that decisive moments in human life take place in a specific place. We understand education as the awakening of a human to looking for the way to their own sources. Everyone in their own way.

 

Unique environment

Our conservatory offers pleasant and friendly environment with several dance studios and well equipped theoretical classrooms.
