The following information is intended for applicants who have already been invited to an audition or interview, to help them prepare. Please note this is only valid for 2020-21.
We invite all applicants who show potential to an audition or interview. All interviews will take place online this year to ensure a safe experience. Interviews are two-way: they give you the opportunity to show your creative skills and ask any questions about the course; and they help us to assess further your potential to succeed in your chosen subject.
We'll invite you to an interview through the Falmouth Applicant Portal.
You can find details of your interview in the Applicant Portal
You can find a list of alternative dates in the Applicant Portal if you're not able to make the one we've allocated to you. If you do need to reschedule we would advise you do this as soon as you can as dates fill up quickly.
Before allocating you an interview date, you will need to send us a short video of you dancing. Once we have received it, we will then book a time and date for your audition.
Please upload a link to a short film of your dancing a minimum of 3 minutes in length. The work(s) you upload needs to show you, clearly, performing a dance work or series of short dance works created by or for you. Upload your link to the Applicant Portal
Think about your responses to questions such as:
1. Why do you want to study Dance & Choreography at Falmouth?
2. Which dancers/choreographers have influenced you and why?
3. What performances or books/journals on dance or choreography have you seen or read?
4. What questions do you have about how Dance & Choreography is taught at Falmouth?
Remember, the audition day is your chance to find out all you need to know to make an informed decision about your creative future. It is important that you get a feel for whether Falmouth is the right place for you, so please be prepared to ask as many questions as you need to. We recommend you familiarise yourself with the information on the BA(Hons) Dance & Choreography course page and the AMATA website
You will be invited to have a 20 minute online discussion with one of the academic staff. The purpose of this discussion is to discuss your motivation for selecting the course, to ensure that you have a full understanding of this innovative course and to answer any questions you may have.
A successful applicant will be able to evidence their skills, their enthusiasm and commitment to their subject according to the following criteria:
Criteria to be assessed
Physical aptitude, potential and motivation: ability to assimilate movement and respond to information given
Devising skills: ability to devise and develop movement material and communicate ideas
Collaboration and communication: ability to communicate and work effectively with others
Independent thinking, motivation and readiness to think effectively on supplied topic
Overall potential for and demonstrated interest in the Dance & Choreography course
We aim to make all decisions within five working days of interviews. However, in some cases, we might wait until we have held a batch of interview sessions before we make a decision. All decisions will be made online in your UCAS Track account and we will also email you.
If, in order to attend an online interview, you have any individual requirements due to a long-term health condition, specific learning difficulty or disability, please contact the Accessibility Service as soon as possible.
