Study guidance is a compulsory part of the dance curriculum during the first two study years.  A contact hour in which students develop study and reflection skills, is scheduled once every two weeks. Study guidance is not evaluated. Attendance is. The tutor makes students aware of the educational structure and how it is organised besides devoting time to the personal development of the students. The tutor challenges students to give their very best and develop their self-reflective potential. Students must develop responsibility, concentration and discipline and implement these qualities in their daily routine. Students are stimulated to develop self-initiative, attend performances and situate themselves within the context of the international dance world. To achieve this, personal guidance is very important. The development from student to professional is not a clear-cut process; it’s up to the dancer to accomplish this.
