Audition | Swindon Ballet Programme

Swindon Dance’s Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) delivers world-class dance training to young talents aged 11-19. Our Swindon Ballet Programme caters to dedicated dancers with a passion for their art. 


Nestled within Swindon Dance, the Swindon Ballet programme runs weekly on Sunday afternoons from 11:00 to 5:00pm during term time. Under the tutelage of industry-leading choreographers and artists, students delve into skills and techniques of:


ballet, strength + conditioning

music appreciation


performance skills

pointe (if appropriate)


Talented young dancers join us from Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, and Dorset to embark on this transformative journey. Supported by the Music and Dance Scheme under the Department for Education, grants make our training accessible, often free or at a subsidized fee*. We’re also committed to alleviating additional financial burdens, covering travel, class reimbursements outside of those offered by CAT, performance tickets, and physiotherapy sessions when necessary.

At CAT, we extend a warm welcome to individuals filled with energy, dedication, undiscovered potential, and above all, an unwavering passion for dance. If successful, you’ll join a community of like-minded dancers, honing your technique, nurturing your creative approach, and benefiting from the knowledge of industry leaders.

For those eager to audition, the process begins by registering your interest online. A member of our CAT team will confirm your free place, paving the way for an exciting journey into the world of dance.
