Continuing the school’s decades-long tradition, we actively seek opportunities to meet people interested in dance, future students, and the public at large. To this end, we are launching the LEAP 21/22 Program in the season preceding the launch of the BCDA Dance Bachelor’s Degree in 2022. In this framework, we will organize a series of professional and artistic events, including a Pre-Audition Course, Career Orientation Days, Open Days, Weekend Workshops, Online Mentor Program, and Admission.

Our classes are led by nationally and internationally renowned active performers and teachers.

The Bachelor’s of Dance offers higher education opportunities for those interested in a professional performing arts career. Career Orientation Days include introductory sessions at dance schools and studios in Hungary. During the day, students and teachers from the school/studio will have the opportunity to gain an insight into the work of the college and meet the teachers who teach in the training.

There are two session plans to choose from, depending on which is most suitable for the school/studio and the students:
A) 1 dance technique lesson (75 minutes), 1 creative lesson + discussion (90 minutes)
B) 1 dance and repertoire session (90 min) and a performance and talk by artists invited by the college (60 min)
In both cases, we will present the renewed professional program of the Bachelor of Dance, explain the admission procedure and answer any questions you may have (approx. 30 minutes).

The program does not require any special technical conditions and can be held in a dance studio, or in a clean gym. 

If you are interested and would like to take part in the program, please contact us!
Blanka Flóra Csasznyi.




Details will be announced soon.

“Interested in our academy but unsure whether to submit your application? If you’ve been thinking about it…, you’re interested in dance… but you don’t know…”

As part of BCDA’s LEAP 21/22, we are launching an Online Mentor Program, inviting dance videos on pre-selected topics. The aim of this program is to give participants an experience of the analytical thinking we use in our training. We will formulate questions and statements objectively, professionally and, above all, for the sake of development, reflecting on the work presented.

The program is recommended for those who are interested in the Bachelor of Dance and want to gain more personal experience before applying for admission, as well as for those who want to get feedback on their dance by showing their work, based on the above-mentioned criteria.

Optional topics:
1. Introduce yourself without words!
2. Make a video based on inspiration!
3. show a style you like and know!
4. Applicants who participated in the previous call will have the opportunity to continue the work they started with us.

Entries will be received by Tamás Bakó, Kristóf Várnagy and Dóra Furulyás, the program coordinators of LEAP 21/22.

During the 2021-22 season, the program will be announced in several periods. You can apply for the program once per period, with one work, but repeated participation per period is not excluded.
