Auditions for Bachelor of Dance

If you want to apply for the Bachelor of Dance, it is compulsory to audition (three rounds). During the first round, you are observed while attending a number of classes. Your physical possibilities to dance, talent, dance qualities, and creativity are the main criteria. It is, however, not merely about being technically able to perform, but also about the way you deal with and react to the subject matter presented to you, and to the given instructions. The way you succeed in creating a personal interpretation is also part of the assessment. In the second round you perform a solo dance and in the third round you will have a motivation interview. You receive the outcome of the audition in a personal talk. After a positive assessment, the candidates are subjected to a medical examination by a sport physician.
