+++ This episode starts out in German but switches to English after a short introduction. +++

New year – new season – new degree? This January, FOYERFUNK is all about starting your studies at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts (HfMDK)! Dance students Naia Nieto and Johann Holland are the guests of our first episode this season. Both of them have found a safe space to discover themselves and hone their skills in the HfMDK dance studio. How nervous were they at their own audition and with what attitude should applicants go there? How did they experience their fresh start in Frankfurt? And what have they already learned as young dancers at the university? Naia and Johann share these personal insights with this season's host Maurício Homberg, student representative and music teaching major.
