PRE-AUDITION INFO

Please apply and send CV 7 days prior to your preaudition date. Filling and attaching the basic personal data part of the application form on line or at least on paper before the pre-audition is a must. Sending more info – as motivation letter, a short video link – will make your and our consideration richer. Or just drop in. Pre-auditon possibility is free of any charge.

THERE IS A NEW POSSIBILITY TO APPLY ONLY BY FILLING THIS PRE-AUDITION QUESTIONNAIRE.

Dear Applicant!

This is the 4th season when BCDA offers pre-auditions all over the world. based on our experiences we can share some useful experiences:
Application materials: Sending of an application letter, CV, motivation letter, portrait and full body photo, video-link makes your application seem serious.

Dresscode: We dance barefoot, in tight but comfortable dresses. Additionally at Budapest pre-auditions dancers need shoes for ballet and ("character" or clean sport)shoes for the Hungarian Folk classes as well.
Chances: We will concentrate on your talent, in other aspects our criteria are very wide however without previous dance experience, certain physical conditions, proper existential background, English communication skills you will have less chances to get an invitation to the Final Audition.
Non-Budapest pre-auditions are very useful to get a personal feed back, but without experiencing the school environment in Budapest your commitment will never be complete.  
Hope to see you
Iván Angelus
