OUR NEW DIGITAL AUDITION PROCESS HAS BEEN CREATED TO ENSURE EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO APPLY CAN
Earlier this year we postponed our annual audition for our Associate Programme due to the national lockdown. As there are still restrictions in place regarding social distancing we feel it would not be responsible to hold an open audition this summer and therefore will be doing an entirely digital application process for our new associate intake.
To make the process simple for all we have created a short video split into two age categories for you to learn and replicate at home. We have also made the application form digital so once you have recorded your exercises you will need to complete the online form below and upload your video.
The closing date for applicants is Monday 3 August 2020. At this point a panel will assess all applications and will be in touch with all regarding the outcome of the audition. We understand there will be limitations with filming at home and this will be taken into consideration. We just ask everyone tries their best in this challenging time.
"I have really enjoyed my time on the Associates Programme. I find the teaching truly inspiring and the access to vocational training alongside my current dance training has really has helped me improve... I can't wait for next year!"
Amelia, current Associate Programme Student (Junior A)
Please follow the link below appreciate to your current age to access video footage of the exercises you are to learn and perform. You will also find music files for the exercises to make it easier for you to perform to whilst recording.
Once you have completed your recording please complete the application form below and upload your audition tape.
The audition fee for our Associate Programme is £40 per dancers and must be paid prior to submitting an application.
This must be done via BACS or bank transfers. The details required are;

To assist with the processing of each application we kindly ask that confirmation of payment for the audition fee, such as a screen print of the transfer or a remittance slip, is also sent along with the application. Applications submitted without proof of payment will not be processed.
If you are struggling to upload your video to our online application form above it may be because the file size is too large.
We suggest you send the file/s to the team using WeTransfer, a free secure file transfer website for sending large files.
To do this please follow the link below ensuring your file is clearly titled with the dancers name as well as using the same email address as per the application form so we can easily assign your video/s to you application form.
