Professional Development

We offer a varied programme of development opportunities for emergent, newly graduated and professional dance artists and performers, providing opportunities for the next generation of future dancers.

We also offer valuable industry experience, knowledge, mentoring and support for the wider sector. We work with and support a wide range of dancers and companies at different stages in their careers and development. Company class, placements, apprenticeships, experience days, professional training opportunities and bespoke mentoring are just some of things we are able to offer.
