1. Candidates living in Europe have to audition before the Audition Board. The audition consists of observing body aptness, dance talent, awareness of music and sense of rhythm. Any candidate having attended training will also be examined on their degree of qualification and the knowledge of the subject material.  

 
2. Overseas candidates may send a video for pre-auditon (by DVD or a video link) with the audition material recorded. The DVD should contain the exercises listed above, shown combined. Please note that the proportion of the video content must be: barre exercised approx. 30%, exercises in the middle, jumps, turns approx 70%. If you have a variation recorded, you may also add to your video.
Please note that we do not accept students by video, but you have to come to a live audition. Pre-auditioning means to ask for an opinion if it is recommended for you to participate at a live audition or your skills have to develop much to meet the criteria set for your age.
With the video you have to send a complete audition package including the audition fee. In case of not recommendig participation at a live audition, the fee is non-refundable.
This possibility is offered to overseas candidates only!
