Eligibility

To apply to the Professional Graduate Programme, dancers must be aged between 18-20 on 1 September 2024 and have completed classical vocational training. Applicants must also have completed their GCSEs (or equivalent) before the course start date.  

Students on the Graduate Programme do not qualify for a study visa and therefore international applications can only be accepted from students who can obtain their own visa to enter the UK. Please note that this course is not accessible under a UK visitor visa.

Applicants must submit:

    • Centre work both sides - battement tendu and battement jeté combination, fondu and ronds de jambe, grand battement, adage, pirouettes, battu jump, and grand allegro
  • CV
  • Complete the medical declaration on this webpage. Please note that the information provided in this declaration will help us to provide suitable staffing for any auditions offered.
