It also provides vital work experience which will boost the students’ career progression.

SECOND PART – 2 terms full-time studio-foccussed training
Here students engage in studio-based work independent of the company. The sole focus is the students’ technical, artistic and personal developement as dancers.
Classes include:

Individual Tutorials and Career Guidance is also given. All tutors are from Chantry Dance Company or industry professionals.
