Announcing the launch of our brand new elite junior associate membership training scheme.
A modern scheme, for modern times.
A membership scheme providing further expert dance training for aspiring young dancers age 8-16. Specialist classes to complement and support the classes taken in your dance schools.
HOW IT WORKS
We will be continuing with our College Open Days and our Junior Open Days throughout the 2023-2024 academic year. These are currently pencilled in for the following dates (subject to change):
- Sun 24th September
- Sun 29th October
- Sun 26th November
- Sun 10th December
- Sun 14th January
- Sun 11th February
- Sun 3rd March
- Sun 14th April
- Sun 2nd June
These will continue to be for new enquirers, the curious, prospective students, our friends from regional schools etc and each dancer will be able to attend one free Open Day.
However, those that want a little bit more in terms of regular elite training can audition to be part of our ‘Evolve’ elite membership scheme which will then automatically permit them to attend as many of the intense elite training days (running alongside our Open Days) as they wish* in order to benefit from the advanced and specialist training from a range of top class industry professionals. Members will also benefit from extended offerings such as additional classes, project offerings, holiday workshops, feedback etc.
We aim to provide access to as many different teachers as possible throughout the course of the year, all highly qualified and experienced specialists in their fields. The scheme is intended to supplement dancers core training at their local dance schools and we encourage dancers to continue with all elements of their core training, including exams, shows, workshops, competitions and championships. We recognise that this presents many other commitments for young dancers, therefore this training program can be booked on to monthly or yearly, with all proposed dates provided the year in advance*
Pupils will be divided into age and ability groups for their classes to ensure maximum benefit and progress for all.
