Experience Workshops take place from May to July each year. You will take part in company class, learn repertoire from NYDC productions and take part in creative tasks.
Experience Workshops can also be used as an opportunity to be considered for a place in the company. A selection of dancers will be invited to attend a final workshop at Sadler's Wells in London later in the year. After the final workshop, 30 dancers from across England are invited to join the company.
Experience Workshops are open to dancers from all backgrounds and abilities, with experience in any dance style. There is no cost to attend the workshops but places must be pre-booked through the booking form below.
