We are now offering a range of audition opportunities for aspiring dancers between the ages of 9 and 19.

The auditions will take place this summer, with successful candidates starting their training in September 2023. If you want to make dance a priority in the next academic year, now is the time to explore your options and register for an audition.
Step2 | 9 – 13 years
Steps2 is part of our talent development programme, specifically designed for young dancers aged 9-13. Typically dancers joining this may have attended a dance club or class in the past and want more of an extended session and work on improving their skills. This programme provides a foundation in contemporary, ballet, and jazz styles, enabling aspiring dancers to build a strong skill set for future training. The Steps2 classes take place on Fridays during term time, from 4:30pm to 6pm.
