Professional Graduate Programme

Our Professional Graduate Programme is a one year traineeship for aspiring dancers with bold ambitions.

This holistic training programme is designed to bridge the gap between full-time training and professional performance. With many opportunities to learn from, train with and perform alongside the internationally acclaimed Northern Ballet, this unique programme provides a fully immersive experience within a professional company.

The Programme was established four years ago and has become an important part of the Academy’s curriculum. Graduates from the most recent course have won contracts with the likes of Ballet Cymru, Ballet Ireland, Baltic Ballet, and Northern Ballet.
