Entry Requirements

To apply to the Professional Graduate Programme dancers must be between the ages of 18 - 20 on 1 September 2021 and have completed classical vocational training. Applicants must also have completed their GCSE’s (or equivalent) before the course start date. International applications are welcome subject to obtaining an appropriate visa.

Fill in the Medical Form

Due to Covid-19, we do not expect you to film your footage from a studio and appreciate that you may not have much space. As long as we can see your whole self and you can dance as full out as possible so we can see your technique and facility, that’s all we need.

Auditions

If your application is accepted, you may be invited for a closed audition. This will be dependent on government guidelines due to Covid-19
