Audition:

1. Applicants living in Europe or in the Middle-East have to audition before the Audition Board. The audition consists of observing body aptness, dance talent, awareness of music and sense of rhythm.

We are welcoming dancers to be: with a basic knowledge of any of the modern and / or contemporary techniques or methods (such as Graham, Limón, Cunningham, Horton, any kind of jazz, improvisation and /or contact dance).

The audition contains a shortened classical ballet class; a short class of divers modern and contemporary elements; some improvisation tasks, and the presentation of a solo number (max. duration of 2 min.), wich has been choreographed and rehearsed previously by any teacher, choreographer or the candidate her/himself. (Please bring your own music for it.)


2. Overseas candidates should send first – for pre-auditioning – a video (DVD or link) presenting their dance abilities, awareness of music and sense of rhythm as well as presenting their knowledge of ballet and any (or more) modern and / or contemporary techniques or methods (such as Graham, Limón, Cunningham, Horton, any kind of jazz, improvisation and /or contact dance). A solo number (max. duration of 2 min.), which has been choreographed and rehearsed previously by any teacher, choreographer or the candidate her/himself should also be recorded.

Please note that we do not accept students by video, but you have to come to a live audition (exceptions may be granted by the Audition Board). Pre-auditioning by video 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.
