Admission procedure

What happens after the application?

The admission procedure consists of a pre-selection and the entrance examination.

The admissions committee decides on the basis of the submitted work samples which applicants will be admitted to the entrance examination. The selected applicants receive an invitation to the examination by e-mail.

The entrance examination consists of a multi-day work phase in which assignments in dance, choreography and conceptual work
will be completed.
The work phase is divided into two parts:
1) A work-group phase, after which a first selection of eligible applicants will be made. They are then admitted to the second phase.
2) A work phase in group and individual work. After this phase, individual talks will be held that make reference to the work samples admitted with the application as well as the performance and impressions during the multi-day work phase.

The necessary English language proficiency will be determined during the admissions examination.

The result can, as a rule, be communicated to the applicants after the completion of the admissions examination; in any case, the applicants will be informed in writing.
