Training Courses

The Move and Total Move training courses in urban arts and sports are intended for young people aged 15 to 22 years old, beginners and non-beginners. The educational program combines collective training and individual learning. Training and creative time is equally distributed.

Besides their main specialty, students have access to additional courses (music and video creation, street art and theory class), master classes, cross-over workshops and creative paths.

Throughout the years of training, the young future artists practice their skills by performing within or outside the school as part of the diversity of projects driven by UMA.

Public Performances

UMA students are frequently invited to perform in public. These events are essential in order to facilitate the transition between student life and professional life.

In the school

Practice sessions and rehearsals in public, performances, and concerts are organized within the Maison des Compagnies.

Out of the school

Students may be invited to perform in original creations developed by UMA upon invitation from theaters and festivals, in Switzerland and abroad. This is an opportunity for them to take part in a unique creative process, with the support of a professional team. They are able to act as performers, thus facing the public, professionals and critics.

Stepping into the Professional World

In addition to performances and shows, which help students confront the audience and critics, UMA offers its students personalized artistic support by organizing collaborations, tutorials and partnerships with professionals and artistic and cultural structures (schools, troupes, circuses).
