Associates Programme

This exciting programme attracts talented students who either aspire to have a career in professional dance or who enjoy and benefit from lessons with top-class professionals.

 

The programme delivers courses in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and brings together students of outstanding promise who may wish to pursue a career in dance. Edinburgh students are accepted from age six while Glasgow and Dundee students are accepted from age eight. Integral to all courses is the provision of top-class teaching; all have an emphasis on ballet.

 

The intention of the course is to complement the students current training, while offering them the opportunity to work with vocational tutors. The course is valuable preparation for the Ballet West High Performance Lower School and the BA (Hons) Ballet vocational programme.

 

Associates meet other children from across the country who share their passion for dance. A highlight of the programme is the opportunity to perform with the Ballet West Company in major productions which, in recent years, have included Romeo and Juliet, The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Giselle.
