BA (Hons) Dance – audition guidance and preparation

Once you’ve applied for the course you’ll be contacted by our admissions staff, offering you a choice of different audition dates. These dates will be between 12 November and 31 May.

The day will consist of:

  • a tour of our dedicated studios and the new performing arts centre, The House
  • presentation of your solo performance piece.

The audition

You are asked to prepare in advance a two to three minutes (maximum of three minutes) contemporary dance solo of your own choreography and perform this at your audition. 

This can be performed with or without music, the music track should be on your phone or iPad. A student ambassador will assist you on the day.

The solo should be performed in bare feet (unless there is a physical or medical reason).

Make the most of the opportunity to excel in your portfolio – you could be eligible for an unconditional offer.

We want to acknowledge your potential (as evidenced by your performance), as well as your commitment to us as an applicant. An unconditional offer allows you to focus on your upcoming examinations and begin planning for your university career.
