- Acceptance rate
* The Folkwang University of the Arts is among the institutions that don't provide data on acceptance rates. This might happen because a university has programs where an applicant only needs to meet admission requirements to enroll and doesn't necessarily competes with others.
We estimate the above acceptance rate based on admission statistics of closely-ranked nearby universities with similar research profiles that do publish such data.

Philippine "Pina" Bausch was a German dancer and choreographer who, with a blend of movement, sound, and prominent stage sets, and with performers during the development of a piece (a style now known as Tanztheater), became an influence in the field of modern dance from the 1970s on. She continued the European and American Expressionist movements in dance with modernist works in the highly dramatic mode of modern dance theatre dealing with psychological trauma arising from relationships. She created the company Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, which performs internationally.
