Dear Applicant!
We are over the first two pre-auditions this year, it is useful to share some experiences:
Dresscode: We dance barefoot, in tight but comfortable dresses.
Additionally at Budapest pre-auditions dancers need shoes for ballet and shoes for the Hungarian Folk classes as well.
Application materials: Sending of an application letter, CV, motivation letter, portrait and full body photo, video-link makes your application seem serious.
Chances: We will concentrate on your talent, in other aspects our criteria are very wide however without previous dance experience, certain physical conditions, proper financial 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 never will be complete.  
Hope to see you
Iván Angelus
