The folk dance specialisation of the dance artist programme prepares candidates for a professional career. It is primarily based on the preparatory programme for university studies. Joining in is available for those who can meet the entrance exam requirements, both from technical and practical aspects.
During the second phase of the programme besides folk dance and classical ballet students learn modern techniques (such as Graham, Limón, jazz, contact), acting, modern ballroom dances, and step technique also constitute part of their training. Professional preparation involves appr. 20 minor performances annually, contributing to the acquisition of stage practice suiting their technical skills and age. Students enter a qualifying examination at the end of the fifth semester. The program ends with a thesis and a practical stage exam. The programme is available every third year.
