12 TALENTED YOUNG DANCERS FROM YORKSHIRE ACCEPTED TO DANCE CONSERVATOIRES
This year, young dancers graduating from the Centre for Advanced Training at Northern School of Contemporary dance have been accepted into some of the UK’s most prestigious dance conservatoires, including London Contemporary Dance School, Rambert School of Ballet & Contemporary Dance, Trinity Laban, and Leeds-based NSCD.
A further 10 students who applied to study dance at further or higher level were successful in their applications.
The Centre for Advanced Training is a national intensive dance programme, funded by the Department for Education (DFE). It aims to prepare aspiring young dancers aged 13 – 17 years for rewarding and successful careers in the arts.
Tracy Witney, Head of Learning & Participation at NSCD, said: “We are very proud of our young dancers and with the continued support of the DFE we are able to continue to train the next generation. Yorkshire is rich with talent and we want to make sure that any young dancer regardless of their background can access high quality dance provision and a future career in dance”.
Graduating students will perform this Saturday 25th June at Northern Ballet in a collaboration with Centre for Advanced Training students from the Academy of Northern Ballet.
