Welcome to The Danish National School of Performing Arts – Further Education Odsherred


The Danish National School of Performing Arts (DDSKS) is an artistic educational institution under the Ministry of Culture providing basic education, continuing and further education and general cultural activities in the performing arts. 

DDSKS was created on January 1, 2015, bringing together all the Danish government and government-supported arts education at tertiary level (actor training at Aarhus Theatre and in Odense, the Playwright education at Aarhus Theatre, The Danish Musical Academy in Fredericia, Odsherred Theatre School and The Danish National School of Performing Arts). 

The establishment of the DDSKS involves the ability to create contemporary performing arts education in a national and international collaborative creative environment and with new flexible and varied study opportunities. The Danish Performing Arts School's mission is to provide artistic education at the highest level to all parts of the performing arts.

The department for Further Education is called EVU and it offers optimized training courses of high professional standards and relevance - courses, workshops, master classes, symposiums and Diploma of Leadership and Diploma in Mediation of Arts and Culture for Children and Young People.

EVU is housed both in Odsherred (Nykoebing Sjaelland) and in Copenhagen; having an international outlook and is a key player in the development of the Danish performing arts environment.

We will develop diploma and master's degrees in performing arts and create a targeted education program for performers who want to develop professionally and gain new knowledge and skills.

EVU is striving to build a bridge between theory and practice and create platforms for interdisciplinary collaboration. We are constantly looking for and introducing new tendencies, methods and ways of working for the benefit of the Danish Performing arts scene – all this with a strong international anchoring.

EVU also has the task of strengthening the artistic and educational cooperation between the school's other departments and in addition to the further education program, we also offer residency and a rental of conference facilities.

We are looking forward to welcoming you.
