Joining the JBUS as a Unistra student

From community management to dancing, from graphic design to video making, from scenography, costumes or management to the stage, joining the association of the Jeune Ballet universitaire de Strasbourg (JBuS) enables you to benefit from numerous opportunities leading to professionalisation.

Here are 4 good reasons to join the Jeune Ballet universitaire de Strasbourg (JBUS):

  1. Take part in a unique experience that will be rewarding for your professional life.

For a successful transition between studies and professional life, the JBUS offers you the opportunity to use your knowledge and skills in support of dance. You, semi-professional dancers, will perfect your technical mastery and grow by learning to perform and meeting audiences. Engage in a process of creating or reviving repertoire with talented choreographers. Express your skills both artistically and organisationally. This voluntary and ambitious experience will be a major asset for your CV and your professional integration.

At the very beginning of your professional life, be daring and reveal your talent to the student community, academics and professionals!

  1. Develop your team spirit and autonomy within a young, close-knit and dynamic ballet.

Join a multidisciplinary team. In a group where all backgrounds are welcome, create a new, close-knit and caring network of contacts. Share your artistic ideas together. You will learn to work as part of a team while demonstrating autonomy and the ability to make proposals, which will be essential in your professional life. Your autonomy and individual commitment will enable you to better understand the role of the artist in society.

Do not hesitate any longer, try out this adventure for yourself among a community of young and talented people who all show the same interest in university ballet. Join the JBuS!

  1. Let your creativity flow and have fun!

Dancing is above all about expressing yourself, having fun and sharing emotions. The JBuS, thus, emphasises individual and collective expression. Climb on the stage and let your artistic skills and your desires express themselves. Or stay out of the spotlight and use your ambitions and creativity for the world of dance. Evolving and growing, that is the objective of the Jeune Ballet universitaire de Strasbourg!

  1. Represent the excellence of the University of Strasbourg and benefit from official recognition.

University associations are the best ways to help develop artistic and cultural creations. Get involved in your university life and take part in the various events organised by your university (Nuit de la danse, Danse en extérieur etc.). In addition, you will represent the excellence of the University of Strasbourg and of your degree in the eyes of external providers. You will also embody Strasbourg’s youth, full of promises and artistic ideas. Finally, you will benefit from official recognition by the University of Strasbourg by registering for the University Diploma of Student Commitment (DUEE in french), which recognises and enhances the value of student commitment and makes it more visible on a CV. The student obtains the DUEE when he/she validates 2 UE among those labelled “DUEE”. Some of them are also offered as open courses in the Bachelor and Master programmes.
