Applications now open for September 2021 Associate Programme admissions

Applications are now open for students to join Central’s Associate Programme in September 2021.

Central’s Associate Programme is a pre-vocational programme of Saturday classes for those aiming for professional dance training, for students aged between 11 and 16 years (academic years 7 to 11). The classes are designed to help aspiring dancers to prepare for a future performing career and will complement regular training after school.

Applicants have the option of applying via video submission or in-person on June 5 2021, dependent on UK Government Covid-19 restrictions at the time, as part of our online application form. If in-person auditions are unable to take place due to Covid-19 restrictions, alternative arrangements will be made.

Many students from the Associate Programme progress to full-time vocational and degree level training age 16 at Central and other dance training organisations.
