Associate Programs


Dance Associates Programs are often held by leading educators as an extra provision to accompany an aspiring dancers regular training.

Have you seen our list of further education providers??

The programs are run by performing arts colleges, choreograpghers and dance companies.  As well as topping up a dancers education they offer the chance to experience different teaching environments. They are particularly useful in assessing whether a post 16 opportunitiy is the right fit, before applying to the school.

As always we endeavor to keep information up to date, but check with the host for more information.
