Dance

Dance Scholarships are awarded to talented performers who are willing to participate in the full range of dance opportunities we have at the School.

In order to apply, please submit the following to the Head of Dance:

  • A report or reference from a Dance teacher, including any relevant performance, experience and/or successes.
  • Approximately one to two minutes (maximum) of a filmed performance supplied via WeTransfer www.wetransfer.com to admissions@surbitonhigh.com, with the file saved as your daughter’s name and Scholarship discipline.
  • A current photo of your daughter.

Shortlisting of Candidates

The Head of Dance will review each application and performance footage will be studied in order to shortlist candidates. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an audition.

Audition for Shortlisted Candidates

There are two parts to the Dance Scholarship audition: a group workshop and a solo performance. The workshop involves a range of practical activities and does not require any preparation.

The solo performance must be prepared in advance and should last between 1 – 2 minutes in length. Dance candidates can choose to perform a dance piece in their preferred dance style. Please note that performances exceeding this time limit will be stopped to ensure that all candidates have a comparable audition length.

Scholarships are offered based on performance during the assessment. The Dance Scholarship requires focus, discipline, creativity and passion, not just talent. Therefore, we look at how candidates create, perform and respond in the audition, as well as their attitude and approach. There are no requirements in terms of dance grades to make an application.
