Welcome to the application procedure of the Dance Department of the Royal Conservatoire. Below, we have listed and explained all the steps in the application. The only thing you have to do, is follow them in this order.

Clicking on the crosses will give you more information. After completing the first five steps on the website, you are referred to Osiris Online Application, which is a part of our student administration system. On that page, you can upload all the documents necessary to do your video audition.

If your results are positive – meaning that you have been 'Accepted' to the Dance Department – you upload the remaining documents necessary to complete the admissions process in Osiris Online Application. You (only for Bachelor Dance students not for Young KC Dance Company students) will also leave this website in order to register as a student at the Royal Conservatoire through ‘Studielink’.

If you have any questions during the process, please contact the student administration office at studentadministration@koncon.nl.

Also check the general admission requirements, these are applicable to all admissions.

First, you collect all the documents necessary for your application for the first round video audition.

  • A video recording (step 2)
  • The motivation form (step 3)
  • Your CV (see below) (step 4)
  • Dance photographs (step 5)  

To get a good impression of your artistic, musical, and technical capacities, we would like to receive a recording of 15-20 minutes. Your entire body should be visible and the recording needs to comply to the criteria listed in the document below. The colour of your clothing should be contrasting to the colour of the background.

At the bottom of the following page, click on the following link to create your new account ‘If you don’t have a username/password, click here’. This account you will need to verify through the email sent to the email address you registered with.

After you have logged in to Osiris, you answer a few obligatory questions. For instance, you will have to indicate which live audition date you would like to register for, if you get through the video selection round.

Upload the documents you collected into the relevant question in Osiris. If you cannot send all your documents at once, we will send you reminders to complete your application. Keep in mind that we can only assign an audition slot for you once all documents have been received.

You can save your answers in between sessions.

Your application is complete and final, only if your answers in Osiris have been sent.

Based on your personal details and answers, your uploaded documents and your video, we will decide whether we invite you to a live audition (if you live within the EU), or whether we accept you (non-EU). In all cases - whether you are being invited for a live audition, accepted, or rejected – you will receive an email notification.
