The aim of the Talentscouting Days is to offer students interested in dance a talent assessment and personal counselling. The dance, musical and artistic talents, the enthusiasm and personal charisma, a quick ability to pick up things, the willingness to perform and the physical condition of each student are individually assessed.

Only when the surrounding is well informed and young dancers are optimally supported can the demanding dance training succeed. Therefore, this day includes not only information and advice for the dance students themselves, but also for parents and dance teachers on the training opportunities and the many careers in concert dance. The individual career opportunities and images of the participants should be addressed as concretely as possible and any possible lack of prerequisites should be addressed.

Since 2011, the Talent Scouting Days have also been the entrance examination for dance clarification for those seeking admission to an arts and sports programme (all training sessions and the short presentation are compulsory for this group). The Talentscouting Days thus ensure that the talented students can compete with like-minded people in a neutral place.
