We receive frequent enquiries about the required level for auditioning.

A beginner would not manage to get through the second selection.  However, it is not necessary to have attended a conservatory or one of the famous schools.  Half of the successful candidates come from private schools. We look for young dancers with a strong potential for progress in technique and artistic expression. We may refuse experienced dancers if we consider that school training is not
appropriate.  Generally speaking, a good level of classical dance gets candidates through the first selection. Physique and presentation are both important. In the dancing profession, the body is the dancer’s work tool, so a strong constitution is necessary and there must not be any weight problems (overweight or anorexia). A student who suffers frequent injuries will be advised to choose another profession.

The teaching methods at the Rudra Béjart School prepare students for the work they will be doing after their training.  This real-life experience allowes the students to realize if they are capable of doing this job or not.
