Applications are now open
Prospective LCDS students are advised to apply as early as possible. The first round of audition places are allocated in November of each year for entry in the following September. The later you apply to more likely it is that there will not be available audition slots.
Undegraduate applications open in the previous September before the year of entry. In addition to auditions at The Place, there are specifically targeted auditions in other countries each year. International students should be sure to apply early enough to allow for visa application if necessary. If you are successful in your first round audition, you may be invited for a recall audition in February or April.
The application form includes details about you, your educational and dance history, and a personal statement about why you want to join London Contemporary Dance School.
Applicants are welcome to contact us before your audition to discuss any questions or concerns they may have, and to arrange a visit to the School. We hold a number of open days during term times, and may be able to arrange visits for other times. We hope that candidates selected for the recall will be able to visit the School between their first and second auditions.
There is a small, non-refundable application fee to cover our costs. This fee can be waived for candidates who are less able to pay. If you are facing particular financial hardship and wish to be considered for an application fee waiver please complete the application form on the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama website, and await the outcome before submitting your application online to London Contemporary Dance School.
If you have any questions about the School please get in touch via email email@example.com or call 020 7121 1111
