Example of dance performance
As part of the interview and selection process for the programme, you will be asked to perform a set dance. An outline of this dance will be sent to you in a written document along with guidance about the other practical elements of the interview.
To give you a good idea of the detail, pattern, and performance requirements of the dance, we have produced the following videos.
Demonstrated by our first-year students, these show a complete demonstration of the interview dance and a slow-motion version.
And below is the demonstration in slow motion.
