This programme (ages 8-18) gives students the opportunity to enhance their current training to achieve the standard and versatility required for entry into a range of vocational colleges alongside other gifted students who share their passion and drive to pursue a performing career.
Each student will have the opportunity to receive individual ongoing advice and potential career development from their panel of teachers. Many Associates have progressed into full-time school and into other leading vocational training establishments.
The emphasis is on the development of secure fundamental technique in Commercial and Hiphop. There is also supplementary training of mental wellbeing as well as professional workshops.
This course runs on a yearly basis with the provision of progressive lessons for those wishing to stay on for more than one year. It runs on Fridays for 40 weeks over three terms with presentations and showing opportunities at theatres, exhibitions and tours.
Course entry is by Application only. Students already enrolled on the programme will be assessed during the year to provide feedback and to review the progression on the programme for future years.
