The audition day
Our day begins at 11:00 a.m. Make sure that you arrive between 10:15 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. to register and warm up thoroughly for the first technique class. Please wear a unitard or leotard/tights, bare feet for contemporary no socks please, and ballet shoes for ballet class. We advise you to wear long sleeves and something on the legs for the improvisation and contemporary classes as it reduces friction and eases movement during the floor work.
The purpose of the audition is to allow the faculty to assess your physical potential, your ability to perform under pressure and your creativity. It will also show us your ability to critically think and understand the tasks given.
The following tasks will allow you the opportunity to demonstrate your skills and abilities through:
- Dance technique class (Ballet and Contemporary)
- Personal interview with the faculty
Three day open school /audition
Berlin Dance Institute invites all future dance artists to spend three days with us in our wonderful atmosphere. These three days give you the opportunity to participate in our programme, to meet the faculty and spend time with our beautiful students.

The dates will be published on our Facebook page and on our website.
