To be admitted to the Hbo Bachelor Dance, Dance Teacher and Hbo Associate Degree Dance programmes, you would need to have one of the following diplomas: secondary vocational education (Mbo level 4), general secondary education (Havo), pre-university education (Vwo), or equivalent diploma. Prospective students also have to audition. The audition consists of three rounds. If prospective students are selected in each of the three rounds, they can be admitted to higher education programmes.
During each audition round, prospective students take classes in several disciplines, including Pop Theatre Musical Dance (PTMD™), Urban, Ballet and Singing. Their athletic level is also tested. During the third round, an intake interview takes place. Prospective students also have to write a letter of motivation explaining their academic and professional aspirations (the letter should be no longer than one standard A4 sheet). The auditions are concluded with a medical examination.
