11-Weeks Intensive Post-Graduate Programme

25-Weeks Intensive Post-Graduate Programme

*OBS: While Covid-19 is present, there will be no in-person auditions in Copenhagen to help minimise travel and risk of infections. Therefore, we accept students based on video audition. We may ask for more material and a phone meeting after receiving your application as well as you are most welcome to ask for a phone meeting if any questions.
Please go to Audition Procedure below to see requirements for the video audition under “for non-EU applicants for video audition”.

The programme is offered in both Autumn and Winter/Spring. Please specify which period you are interested in.

To sign up for audition please fill in the application form (link below).  It is only necessary to attend one audition.

We advise you to apply at least 6 weeks before the first day of the programme and preferably 2 months in order to assess application and arrange potential in-person audition. If applying for Autumn programme, it is strongly recommended to apply June latest due to Summer holiday.


At least 3 years of professional dance education is required. The Post-Graduate Programme is aimed at creative and strong dancers who possess the drive, motivation and responsibility to take charge of the development of their  careers. To apply for the programme please fill in and send the application form found at the bottom of this page. Please remember to attach graduation diploma. If you have not graduated by the audition day, please attach confirmation of enrollment from your school stating expected date of graduation.

If you require a visa to come to Denmark, it is possible to apply for an alternative audition via video. Read more here.
